What to include in (or leave out of) an Interpreter CV? Assignment and client details?

Hello colleagues,

I'm writing this post as I have a question about what to include (or not) on a C.V.

This might seem obvious to the more experienced members among us but I have a few doubts about the exact amount of detail to include on a C.V.

If you work with an agency, do you detail each assignment with the name of the end client, and the type of service given, i.e. "Liaison interpreting on [date] at [company] dealing with [subject]. Or do you anonymise the name of the end client to say you have worked with [the agency]?

I'm curious as one agency in particular has given me lots of interpreting assingments over the past year and I don't know whether to reference the end clients, and detail each assignment or to group everything under the name of the agency...

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Happy interpreting... and translating,
