I've worked at 2 previous companies where the company has shutdown. I was at one of these companies for 3 years, another for 2 years. I'm wondering if I should note this on my resume so to signal to people that I didn't change jobs because of performance reasons. Is it necessary? Obviously during any type of conversation, they will probably ask me, and I will mention it. What's the norm here?
I do have a great relationship with the people I've worked for. I'm still in touch with these people and a reference is definitely not a problem. I just thought it is a turn off for people looking at my resume, because I have many companies on it. I guess trying to explain some of it is probably not the right strategy?
