I have a problem in listing two jobs at the same company.
I was hired with a contract of 2 years for a project (from April 2014 to April 2016). After that, I did not want to take the first job, so I took few months off (7-8 months). Then the company called me again to start with another project from December 2016 to December 2018 (unfortunately still temporary). Since my contract will be over in few months, I will be back on the market soon, but this time I would like to find a permanent job.
I am wondering how I could list my last 4 years (in different roles, but not so much). Should I list the gap of 5 months or not?
I could have this option (that shows the gap):
- Business Development Manager, Company A, December 2016-present (2-year contract)
- Marketing Specialist, Company A, April 2014-April 2016 (2-year contract)
I could have this option (no gap, no mentioning temporary contract)
Company A April 2014-present: - Business Development Manager (2016-present) - Marketing Specialist (2014-2016)
What do you think? How would you list it? I am afraid they will think they do not want to hire me. And if I put the gap, what should I say?
