You should really be tailoring your resume for each job you apply for. You want to read through the job specs, understand the company and make sure that your resume positions you well for that job and company. It also depends on how much you have on your resume, try keep it to 2 pages if you are getting beyond that then slim it down keeping the most relevant projects. If all of your projects fit in the 2 or so pages then keep them in. For the projects that don't match or are less noteworthy try focus on the aspects that are relevant for the position you are looking for.

Hi! I think it is a great idea to have all of the experiences that you have ever had on a document on your computer, so you do not forget them. When applying for jobs, you will want to keep your resume to one page, and it should only include the most relevant experiences for the position. Not every position will want the same things, so that will help you narrow down your experiences. In particular, your field will definitely want to see all of the programming software that you are skilled in. I also think it would be a good idea to include projects, but again, you will want to narrow your experience according to the relevance of the position.

For preparing the resume for computer scientist or any other, first you need to put intro and summary followed with the skills you have and brief info on the project ie, the roles and responsibility in that particular project. If you have more than 3 or 4 projects consider the one's which are latest and relevant for the company where you are applying the job.

Thanks,
