    seriously? why would a school want to know that i bussed tables back then? this is not an NQT position, in fact to meet the criteriaa person would need to be about 25.

    why would an employer ask for this? (for the record, i can't remember half the jobs i had back then)

    I misspelled 'criteria.' how embarrassing.

    Thank you for this. I decided to simply enter a couple of volunteer positions which I could remember details for, and should I go to interview I'll be happy to recount my experiences cleaning up after the all-you-can-eat sundae bar or babysitting small children and large dogs.

    No - that was an obvious typo, and you would have spotted it in an application. More embarrassing would have been using it as a singular when in fact it is the plural of criterion!
    Best of luck.
