Mario,I agree with you that the experience you learnt from working on small projects is just as valuable as information you learnt from large projects. The interviewee's critique perhaps was referring to the fact that large projects have a larger scope of work and therefore come with larger budgets, longer schedules, and most importantly larger room for error. Ultimately, both small and large projects have their unique differences but there is value in each.I would keep the information on your resume but by the interview's focus on the outcomes and learned experience you gained for each of those projects. Focus on how you can apply each of those experiences with the current role and responsibilities you are applying for.Best of luck,Daniel Bressler
