What's the best format for listing your employers and job titles?

There is an unwritten standard on this that, when followed, makes your resume easier to read. The company name should always be listed first and at the left margin; ALL CAPS can be a nice way to display it. Provide the location directly after the company name, although you should not use all caps or other emphasis on the location (you want to draw the reader's eyes to company and job title). Put your job title directly below the company name.

City - ST

Job Title

How do I list several different jobs with one company?

You want to show the reader that you didn't job hop - that you gained varied experiences and (presumably) were promoted along the way. To do this you list the company name once and put the all-inclusive dates at the right margin on the same line as the company name. Then, for specific job assignments you list them under the company heading as follows….

COMPANY NAME – Fargo - SD 1996-2002
Controller - Plastics Division (2000-2002)

Describe your job and bullet your accomplishments relevant to this assignment.

• Accomplishment
• Accomplishment
• Accomplishment

Fixed Asset Accounting Manager - Power Division (1998-2002)
Describe your job and bullet your accomplishments relevant to this assignment.
