How Do I Show Temporary Promotions at an Employer?.

by Melissa

I have worked with the same company for the past 8 years and throughout that time I have 'Acted' in more prominent positions at different times. The position that I have Acted in is now vacant. I'm not sure how to incorporate the acting arrangements element in the resume.

For instance, I have acted as a Data Analyst for the periods: May 2006 - September 2006; December 2006 - April 2007; July 2008 - November 2008(notice the breaks
in the period of acting).

How do I include these multiple time periods without repeating the job title, job description, etc.

Thank you very much.

Good for You, Melissa

Melissa, I think I would include these periods of acting in another capacity as achievements under the regular job being held at the time. Just list them as a bullet point. After all, they ARE a testament to your job performance at the time.

You could go into more depth in your cover letter, if needed.
