General app question (how to show new jobs at same company) [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2008, 08:44
I was just browsing an online application for the first time. In the employment history section it appears that the different entries for jobs relates to different types of employers. Is this typically the case? What should one do for multiple jobs at the same employer (both promotions and lateral job changes)? Should these be entered as separate jobs?

Thanks!

If the jobs have substantially similar responsibilities, then I would group them together. Otherwise, they should be separate entries.

Show them as separate positions. In fact, it can work in your favor as my interviewer remarked that the number of promotions I received was very impressive. It's an excellent way to show career progression--that you didn't have to switch shops to move up into higher positions. Being recognized internally at your company enough to be promoted is a very good indicator of your performance.

Another portion of my application asked for a detailed salary outline. So even if your job's title didn't change, it serves to show career progression as well.

I made different entries with my job title for each of the positions I held.

Do most people list salary changes in their resume? I've had 2-3 major (> 10%) salary changes in the past few years, should I list them in the resume, or only when asked in the application?

I've never seen any resume discuss salary or bonus. Unless an employer or school specifically asks for it, I wouldn't put any compensation data on a resume.

No, do list it on your resume. If required, schools will ask for salary/raises/bonuses in a separate part of the application. (Kind of like how you fill in your demographic information separately.) This goes into their stats as to how much of a salary increase their students achieve after graduation.

Thanks for the clarification - a dumb question on my part - I would/should have known this if I started filling out the online apps :)

Some schools request specific formats, I think that Chicago asks you to put salary info in your resume. I wouldnt put it on your resume unless the schools ask for it...

Thank you, this is very helpful. It is especially crucial for me because I've only worked at 1 company (since graduation) because of the promotions I've received and broad roles I've been given.

I grouped mine by different salary grades and different functions.

For example, I worked 7 years at a company, 5 years as an engineer, 2 years as business dev.

Years 1-3: Title: Engineer
did this and that and something else

Years 3-5: Title: Senior Engineer
increased responsibility, etc...

Years 5-7: Title: Business Development
different tasks and responsibilities

something like that. :)

There are resume books from Tuck and Wharton floating around...they also have some pretty handy examples of how to indicate role/titles within the same company :)
