How do you list two different but concurrent jobs in the same company?

by Laura
(Kansas City)

I currently have 2 job titles at the same company. One I started in 2008 and the other in 2009. As far as formatting goes, should I combine them or separate them with the most recent on top. My fear with separating them, is the employers will think it is a mistake when it says 2008-present and 2009-present.

ANSWER: If the 2 positions are really very different, then I'd list them separately and explain the concurrent dates in your cover letter. But if the positions are similar, then you might just list them both under the employer together, with a combined list of responsibilities/achievements.

To your success,
