Changing positions at work can be a cause for celebration … until you have to figure out how to list it on your resume. The good news is, it isn’t nearly as complicated as it seems — and if you do it right, it’ll make your resume stand out for all the right reasons.

How to list multiple jobs at the same company on your resume:

  1. List the company name. You can do this individually for each role or once with multiple job titles underneath (see below for details).
  2. List your job titles with the most recent position at the top.
  3. Include the dates you worked at each position — it’s okay if there’s overlap.
  4. List 3-6 accomplishments for each role (or total if the roles were similar). Choose accomplishments that show clear career progression.
  5. Explicitly highlight added responsibilities, whether or not you were officially promoted.

If the roles were similar

If you moved to a different role in the same company but your responsibilities remained similar, you can stack your job titles on top of one another underneath the company name and list your accomplishments underneath, like this:

COMPANY NAME, location
Senior Business Analyst, dates
Business Analyst, dates
- Include bullet points from both roles, focusing on career progression

Lead with your most impressive or high-level accomplishments, even if they technically belonged to the older position. Remember that your resume is about telling a story, so order your bullet points in a way that paints a picture of career progression. If you can, include an accomplishment that explicitly highlights growth, like “Earned expedited promotion to ...”

A good way to find out if your resume bullet points highlight your most impressive/high-level accomplishments and career progression, is to upload your resume to the tool below. It’ll scan your resume and tell you your resume’s strong points and areas that could use a little improvement.

If the roles were different

If it doesn’t make sense to combine the roles — for example, if your responsibilities were very different, or if you worked in two separate departments —you can list the positions separately, with different bullet points underneath each one.

COMPANY NAME, location
Project Manager, dates
- Include bullet points that emphasize new or additional responsibilities


Business Analyst, dates
- Include accomplishments in bullet point format

Listing the company name twice

As an alternative, you can list the company name twice — this might look odd, but it can actually help some Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) read your resume more accurately.

COMPANY NAME, location
Project Manager, dates
- Include bullet points that emphasize new or additional responsibilities

COMPANY NAME, location
Business Analyst, dates
- Include accomplishments in bullet point format

If it was more of a lateral move, you can still frame it as a promotion by emphasizing higher-level accomplishments in the more recent position. This might mean downplaying your responsibilities in an older role, which can feel counterintuitive, but is worthwhile if it allows you to demonstrate career growth.

If you held two jobs at the same time

If you held two similar jobs at the same time, you can choose to list these either together or separately. If the positions had overlapping responsibilities, you can list a hybrid job title, like this:

COMPANY NAME, location
Project Manager / Business Analyst, dates
- Include bullet points from both roles

If listing your job title in that way doesn’t make sense, you can stack your job titles and list the end dates of both as “Present.” This makes it clear that you held both jobs simultaneously.

COMPANY NAME, location
Project Manager, [start date] — Present
Business Analyst, [start date] — Present
- Include bullet points from both roles
- Include another bullet point that applies to both roles

If you worked on multiple projects

If you worked on multiple projects or with multiple clients at the same time, this is a great way to show that you’ve taken on multiple roles — even if your job title didn’t change. List your job title(s) underneath the company name with a brief blurb explaining the scope and context of the role, and then create a subheading for selected project experience.

COMPANY NAME, location
Project Leader, dates
- A brief overview of what you did in the role
Selected Project Experience
-       Project #1
-       Include 1-3 accomplishments from this project
-       Project #2
-       Include 1-3 accomplishments from this project

Like anything else on your resume, this doesn’t have to be a comprehensive list of every project you’ve ever worked on. Choose 2-3 projects that demonstrate your most relevant or impressive accomplishments and that show a clear pattern of career growth.

If you unofficially held many different roles in the same company, group your accomplishments together by client or project

If you left the company and then returned

If you left a company to work somewhere else and then returned, you should list these positions separately, with any roles you held in the meantime in between them.

COMPANY #1, location
Job title, dates
- Include accomplishments in bullet point format

COMPANY #2, location
Job title, dates
- Include accomplishments in bullet point format

COMPANY #1, location
Job title, older dates
- Include accomplishments in bullet point format

If you don’t want to list another position in between those two roles — for example, if you were unemployed in that period, or if you held a position for only a short time that didn’t work out — you can list the two roles as in previous examples, under the one company heading. Don’t worry about the discrepancy in dates (especially if the gap was 6 months or less) but do be prepared to address it if asked during an interview.

If you were still employed by the company but not working in between the two positions — for example, if you were furloughed or on a short sabbatical — you don’t have to subtract that time from your dates of employment, as you were technically still employed. If you were on an extended leave of absence or other career break before returning to the same company, you can address this simply in a single line on your resume.

Leave of Absence, dates

Example bullet points to highlight progression

Whenever you can, include examples of bullet points that explicitly point to promotions or other career progression, like these examples:

  • Earned expedited promotion to Senior Sales Associate based on strong performance and organizational impact.
  • Promoted after 12 months (6 months ahead of schedule).
  • Ranked top of the class and offered an early promotion to Lead Designer after 2 years.
  • Received company-wide award for above and beyond work; one of only 3 employees recognized in a 50-person department.

Use the tool below to search for hard skills relevant to the job you’re applying to. It also gives you the option to upload your resume  — it’ll do a quick scan and tell you which skills are missing.

Things to keep in mind

Show career progression

When listing multiple jobs at the same company, career progression is key. Hiring managers want to see growth, so it’s a huge red flag if more recent roles appear to have less responsibility than older positions.

Highlight different responsibilities in your multiple positions

If you have taken a step sideways — or even backward — it’s important to be able to point to areas where you’ve improved and challenged yourself. Different responsibilities, moving to a new area or department, and taking on opportunities for professional development can all be framed as career growth, even if they were technically at the same level (or lower) than a previous role.

Choose accomplishments that emphasize your multiple roles

If you’ve moved to a higher or more challenging role that isn’t immediately obvious from your job title, choose accomplishments that make it obvious — be quick to point out things like managing a larger team or analyzing data in addition to entering it. You can also get more explicit by including wording like “fast tracked” or “promoted ahead of schedule” to really underline the point.
