I’ve worked for my current employer for about 12 months. The role offers the opportunity apply skills I’ve been working on growing for the past few years. But my values and the company’s values don’t match, and there seems little chance that the company will change. I feel it would be better for me to find an employer that better fits my values.
I’ve contacted a few recruiters, and discussed my current role and how my employer is a poor fit. I have run into my first job-hunting snag: I haven’t updated my resume to include this employer. (I guess I’m embarrassed to admit I work there.) The recruiters know I’m employed, but my resume doesn’t reflect my current position, yet. Obviously they, and I, need something more current to send to potential employers.
I have a few questions:
How difficult will it be to job hunt without revealing my current employer's identity on my resume?
Is there a way to mention the work I’ve done for my employer on my resume, maybe reformatting my resume, without stating that I currently actually work there?
