One of the dilemmas that you are likely to face when completing your resume, how do I describe my work experience on a resume? especially if you have one worked in one Organisation for a long time, is how to list down your jobs on your resume.
The key thing to keep in mind is that you want to show career growth over the years. Therefore, even though you have been in one organisation for say 10 years, but you want to demonstrate that you were not doing the same thing all that time.
You may ask what order should work experience be listed on a resume? There are two ways to list multiple jobs at one company on your resume are: the most common resume format, Bundling Method and Snippets Method.
In this method you begin by listing out all the different positions that you have held, starting with the most recent position and their corresponding start and end dates. Resume work experience have to be in chronological order.
After listing all the positions, you then list an assortment of your best and proudest achievements from all the roles that you have held. This is the the best way to format a resume.
Company XYZ – City, State
Accounting Manager: January 2008 – December 2015
Senior Accounting Associate: January 2004 – December 2007
Accounting Assistant: January 2003 – December 2003
Bookkeeper: January 2000 – December 2002
However, if you have held so many positions in one Company, it would be smart to list the five most recent positions.
Then have an extra line below the fifth position (such as Bookkeeper in the example above) that says – “Other Positions held” then you can write the titles in a brief sentence.
In this method you list the name of the Company, and then individually list each position that you have held, and highlight a few bullet points/snippets of achievements that are specific to that position.
You keep repeating this process for each position that you held.
When you wonder “How can I make my resume attractive? “This method is an ideal one. In cases where the jobs that you have held are different, for example if you started off your career in one department and then moved to a totally different department such as from Accounting to Information Technology.

â€ś All I can say is wow. You put this is a way that I could not. I would have never thought of how you did this and everything just stands out to me. I figured mine was too jumbled and would lose interest. From what I can see it is great.â€ť â€ť
