Resume Tips: How to Deal With Multiple Positions at One Company

July 3rd, 2012

Picture it: You’re looking for a new job and trying to craft the perfect resume. The trouble is that you’ve worked at one employer, but have held multiple positions. So should you just list your most recent position – or highlight all of them? And if it’s the latter, how do you do it effectively?

First, you should absolutely highlight that you’ve held multiple positions within one company, particularly if it demonstrates an upward progression in your career. This shows prospective employers that you’re delivering positive results and have the track record – in the form of promotions – to prove it.

Secondly, there are two ways to approach multiple positions with one employer on your resume:

  1. You can either deal with each job title as separate positions.
  2. You can stack the positions and include the details under the stacked titles.

If you choose the first option – to list each position separately ­– it would look like the following:

ABC Company
Office Manager, February 2008 – Present

  • Details of tasks and accomplishments to go here.

Administrative Assistant, June 2006 – February 2008

  • Details of tasks and accomplishments to go here.

If you choose the second options – to stack the positions – it would look like this:

Office Manager, February 2008 – Present
Administrative Assistant, June 2006 – February 2008

ABC Company

  • Details of tasks and accomplishments to go here.

If you take this approach, when discussing the details of your tenure, be sure to further emphasize the fact that you’ve been promoted or achieved a higher level in your career with the company. Then go on to describe the accomplishments and results you’ve achieved in the new role.
