How Do I Show a Layoff & Rehire in My Resume?

by Gregg
(Omaha, NE, United States)

My position at the company I work for now was cut and I was laid off in March. I was hired back on in August. I worked for a Landscaping business from April-July to make ends meet. How do I list this on my resume? Do I make it two separate jobs for the company I was laid off and rehired at?

ANSWER: Yes, you will make separate listings on your resume for each employment period, in reverse chronological order. It's not really 2 separate jobs, just 2 separate work periods. Do you see? Since the job was the same, though, you don't have to list all your duties/accomplishments twice... unless they weren't the same. And DO show the landscaping job too, in order to avoid the appearance of an employment gap.

Best of luck,

Show a Layoff & Rehire in My Resume NEW
by: Nicolas

Last six month I worked for a company. Now I left the job and looking for another. Now I am clear to attache this experience in my resume. A custom resume writers also said the same things which you have mentioned in your answer.

Some of my friends saying that 6 month of experience will not be counted. It should be at least a year. Is it right?

Showing layoff and rehire on resume
by: Kathy Z

My job was eliminated in June 2009. In April 2010, I was contacted by same employer to return on a temporary basis to fill an opening created when a former colleague (out of state) resigned.

How best to show two different work periods for same employer on my resume?
