This question already has an answer here:
I work as a UX Designer (Senior Level) in a company I joined 5 years ago. It just got renamed 3 times (!).
Currently, I am updating my CV and am asking myself how to display the name changes. I don't really want to have 3 separate entries because this will look like I changed the company each 1 1/2 years and in fact it's the same company.
Would it be okay to just take the current name of the company and display it as one entry? Or will my future employer research and find out that the company I listed just got founded in 2016, which could make him think I'm a fraud.
Am I overthinking this? Does HR do such extensive research?
