Great Resume Formats for One Company and Multiple Job Titles

Great Resume Formats One Company and Multiple Job Titles

Many years ago, you started working in a company as an analyst. Now, twenty years later, you are an executive.

Along the journey, you stayed loyal. You had multiple job titles, learned many skills, and picked up knowledge of several different positions in a company. Now, the growth opportunities have ended and you are about to change jobs. There is nowhere else to go, except upwards.

How will you explain all the different titles on your resume? Here are some great resume formats to help you.

1. Create a resume for each different title within the company

Be honest. You are an executive, now. Chances are you will not go back to being an analyst again. Take your most important multiple job titles within the company. Then, create a separate resume for each one.

Even if you held several different positions in a company, some job titles you may never need to apply for again. For example, the three years you spent as a Business Associate taught you many great skills. But you are a leader now.

The earlier stages of your time in the company will serve you better in the Skills section of your resume. While applying for an executive position, new companies do not need to know that one of your previous job titles had to do with managing a mailroom.

2. Listing multiple job titles under the employer name

Show your growth through the different positions in a company by listing them from “most recent” to “oldest”. An example of this great resume format is below:

"JP Morgan (July 2001 - August 2012)

Vice President | Executive Director – CIS coverage (Aug 2009 – Aug 2012)

Associate | Vice President – EMEA coverage (May 2006 – Aug 2009)

Analyst | Associate – M&A/Diversified Industrials coverage (Jul 2001 – May 2006)”

The different titles held over an eleven-year career in a company show that this person went from “beginner” to “leader”.

The job skills section of this resume is packed. Underneath the job titles are descriptions of achievements and accomplishments.The majority of your achievements should come from the most recent positions.

3. Showing each of the multiple job titles with its own description

A great resume format with different titles is to have the one company, followed by a description of every job title within the company.

This is recommended especially for those with technical program leadership experience. You are effectively showing that every different position in a company came with its own education in a particular skillset. All the multiple job titles and descriptions should look something like this:

  • [Company name] (Combined years with the company)

  • [Job title] (Years of service within the job title)

  • [Insert descriptions and skills ]

  • [Insert achievements]

Leave a space to start a different title...

  • [Job title] (Years of service within the job title)

  • [Insert descriptions and skills ]

  • [Insert achievements]

Rinse and repeat with different positions in a company.

Final note

Regardless of the great resume format you use and all the multiple job titles in one company that leave you with a sense of pride, remember your resume should always reflect, “Do you have what the company needs?” Anything else is too much for a resume.
