Hi, I'm virtual. Should I list a job location on my resume? If so, my home city or the employer's location?
Example 1: In a prior position, I managed a Business Unit and all directs in Atlanta, GA but I resided in Chicago, IL. I'd spend two weeks a month in Atlanta and the other weeks in my virtual home office.
Example 2: In my present position, I live & work virtually in Columbus, OH for 3 weeks a month and 1 week a month I'm in San Francisco at my employer's location (at least I was pre-Covid).
For me putting job location

For my remote-only contracts, I cite "remote (Atlanta GA)".
Thank you for responding
