Sample Resume For The Frequent Job Changer

Nancy had many great experiences and learned many skills.  Unfortunately, the experiences were with multiple companies.  Not to worry, it is okay to only include the years of employment — and not the specific months of employment –for Nancy’s employment dates.

Also, it is acceptable in a resume situation to drop names.  Nancy had an unusual situation, she had been employed at the head of the digital marketing field, but a majority of the companies that she had worked for had either gone out of business, changed the name of the business, or would not be known by mainstream marketers.

Sample Resume For The Frequent Job Changer

To highlight Nancy’s skills, this resume focuses attention on some of her former clients.  She helped to manage the online marketing campaigns of some of the most famous brand names — Sony, GM, and Kraft.  Listing this on a resume is likely to gain some attention.

Instead of listing the companies where Nancy had worked, we listed her various job titles, and then the company name.  The titles were manager of business development and director of sales.  Her titles establish her level of experience and credibility.  This also moves the attention away for the fact that she worked at a different company every couple of years, and that the recruiter may not be familiar with the name of the company that she had worked for.

This approach may not work in every instance, but you will want to begin each entry with either the company or your title — whichever would be more applicable to the recruiter.  Make sure that once you have chosen a formula that you keep it consistent throughout the entire resume.
