How do I list multiple positions at the same company on my resume?
You are a valued employee at your company and have been promoted to increasingly responsible positions and titles over your tenure within the organization. But now you want to make a move to a new company and ensure that your resume will highlight your past success and progress.
There are many ways to list multiple, successive positions within the same company. A preferred option is to list the name of the company, followed by a brief description of the organization. Next to the company, insert the total number of years (e.g.,2010-Present); and then below the company name, indent, and list the succession of positions, starting with the most recent and working back to the initial job - with appropriate description of responsibilities. In this way, the hiring manager will not only recognize the length of time that you have been with a specific company, it will also demonstrate loyalty and continuity. More importantly, the hiring manager will easily understand that you have been a valued employee by promoting you to jobs with increased responsibility. The reader of the resume can see this as one composite experience. (If you list each position separately, sometimes the reader will interpret that as changing jobs - not recognizing that they have all been within the same company.) The preferred way to organize your jobs as described above, is as follows:
XYZ COMPANY 2010 - Present
(XYZ Company is a global corporation, with 2500 employees worldwide, annual revenue of 1.5 billion, in the business of manufacturing specialty widgets)
Having worked 11 years for XYZ company, I have been rewarded and promoted multiple times with increased responsibilities and compensation.
• Vice President Manufacturing 2021 to present
(Explanation of skills, responsibilities, and reporting structure)
• Senior Manager 2015 to 2021
(Explanation of responsibilities, etc.)
• Junior Manager 2013 to 2015
• Intern 2010 to 2013
Both the byline under your name, as well as your Cover Letter should also emphasize and repeat your longevity at one company by saying something like:
“Experienced accounting professional, with 11 years-experience at XYZ company, etc.”
Your loyalty and development as a professional should shine on the resume, which will make you a very attractive candidate to any future organization.
