What information for my resume?

I have a friend that is looking for a job, and she has worked so many jobs over the years she asked me what did I think about not listing them all? She thought too many might look as bad as not having worked for several years like some because they took time off to raise their family.

I went searching around to see what professionals advise on that because I had no clue. Here is some interesting reading I found on the matter and thought it may be useful to others also.

Do You Have to Include All Jobs on a Job Application?

What is your opinion on the subject?

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”
