Updating resume with promotions
This might change if being a Banana specifically helped me become an Apple.
Second question you have to ask yourself is, did your roles and responsibilities change with the promotions?
And what’s the best way to re-vamp your resume to make sure you highlight your new position, but also the experience that led to your new role.
While you don’t need to update your resume right away, Augustine says it’s important to chronicle the details of what you do in your new job.
Junior Banana was help with XXX, Banana was be primary / lead contact for XXX, Senior was run / get new clients for XXX.
Promotion for each title is kind of expected on an annual basis within the industry.
I will tell you that I've trashe- err, filed CVs where a candidate has overvalued their real position -- eg.
claimed to be a Senior Orange, after one year of experience, but never showed any indication of mentoring a single Junior Orange, or anything else that I would consider a Senior responsibility. In the end, you have to ask yourself what message you want to convey, then figure out how to convey it most efficiently. I would go so far as to say that people thinking you've done one role for [x] years is absolutely terrible if that's not the case.
Augustine notes that you want to show your enthusiasm and gratitude, but to make sure the promotion is set in stone before you go and publicly announce the promotion online, especially if you’re not sure if you co-workers have bee notified of the changes.e.g: Oranges Inc, Senior Developer (Seattle, 2010 - 2013) Accomplishments etc here Banana Inc, Senior Developer (New York, 2009 - 2010) Accomplishments etc here Banana Inc, Development Engineer (New York, 2008 - 2009) Accomplishments etc here Banana Inc, Junior Developer (New York, 2007 - 2008) Accomplishments etc here There is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all.In fact, in my personal case, one of the jobs which I list on my CV (And make a point of, too, as it was the sort of role I wanted) was actually a 6 month secondment.I'm actually interested in being an Orange, and as such that industry might not know how a banana's career progression would typically change. The opposite is true - you got promoted within the company, that shows that you have what it takes, that others valued you enough to promote you (and probably over others in the same position). 2010-2013 Apple Company B details of role and responsibilities 2009-2010 Promoted to Senior Banana - Company A details of role and responsibilities 2008-2009 Promoted to Banana - Company A details of role and responsibilities 2007-2008 Junior Banana - Company A details of role and responsibilities Company B - 2010-2013: ----------------------- 2010-2013 Apple details of role and responsibilities Company A - 2007-2010: ---------------------- 2009-2010 Promoted to Senior Banana details of role and responsibilities 2008-2009 Promoted to Banana details of role and responsibilities 2007-2008 Junior Banana details of role and responsibilities There are a couple of different issues here.I'm unsure if this is relevant, but contemporaries / friends I know who also worked as a Junior / Senior Banana have grouped all three titles into one as I have tended to in the past - could this be an industry specific trend? First, are you planning to go on being an Apple or a Banana?
