When writing my CV, I noticed my last role (and the other before that) were pretty much like-for-like just at different companies (they weren't taken over, I just left for a better salary)

Should I put it like this

**(Job role)**

*Employer 1 (date-date)*

*Employer 2 (date-date)*

(Job description)

or just as two separate jobs, worded differently even though it was a pretty much identical job?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


This format is more standard in my experience, even if the titles and job requirements are the same. In reverse chronological order:

Employer 1 (date-date)

(Job Title)

(Job Description)

Employer 2 (date-date)

(Job Title)

(Job Description)

  • thank you. that's how it is at the moment, but I was just looking to save a bit of room since I'm applying for jobs of a different role than I had before so it doesn't really seem that relevant. – cantsay Feb 2 '14 at 22:24
