    Default had and held and resume writing?

    Are there any differences between saying "the jobs I've ever had" and "the jobs I've ever held"?
    Is either of them better writting than the other one (in terms of resume writing)?

    No difference, in my opinion.

    I wouldn't use a contraction in a resume, though.
