How do I list the same job if it moved to another city and a sister company?

by Genevie
(Atlanta, GA)

I've been working for the same airline for three years. The department I worked with was in New York under ABC Airlines, then was transferred to the headquarters building in Atlanta GA aerologistics.

I am now employed under ABC sister company World Airways, which is at headquarters. I may not be working at the ABC building in NY but my procedures haven't changed from when I first started, it's all the same. How do I handle this on my resume?


ANSWER: Genevie, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't just list the 2 employers/locations at the top of a job listing, with one title and one list of accomplishments. Like so:

October 2008 to Present - World Airways, Atlanta, GA
June 2005 - October 2008 ABC Company, NYC, NY
Aerologistics Coordinator
  • Accomplishment one
  • Accomplishment two...

Then, I'd also mention the move and the relationship between the 2 companies in your cover letter just to clarify.

Make sense?
