How Do I List the Same Basic Job for Two Different Employers?

by John
(Ozone Park,NY.)

I work for a contract maintenance company and I am doing the same exact things now as I did with my previous employer. Do I write the same description on my resume for both jobs?

ANSWER: You have a couple of options. You can list each job separately, with basically the same description. Or, you can list the job responsibilities and then just list jobs afterward with employer and position title.

In either event, I'd use the cover letter to shed more light on the similarities.
