How Do I Reflect a Change in Management?

by Kayla

My former job has a new owner, but the name of the place is still the same. How should I reference the contact for that on my resume?

ANSWER: Hi Kayla... I'd put the current owner/contact on your resume. You can explain the buyout in your cover letter, if you believe it is relevant.

Phone Call?

Kayla... First off, you don't normally put a person on the resume, only the name of the company, so I'm not certain what you're trying to do here. But if you really need a name, then you could call the company and ask for the info. You could also ask them who would provide or confirm any inquiries for references. Chances are they have some designated person who could at least review your employee personnel file.

I don't know the new owners name. This happened after I had left. I don't know how to reference a person who I do not know me and has not met me.
