Should I list the same job twice if I got a pay increase within the same position.

by Christian

I am in a position but recently got a pay increase which put me in a higher pay grade but my duties stayed the same. How do I list this on my resume? Do I list it twice at two separate pay grades or just list it once and put my current pay grade & the dates I held the position, even though the dates don't reflect the time I held the pay grade?

Answer: Christian, I'm not sure the pay grade is an important part of the resume, but I might be missing the point. If nothing else changed, then you could either just mention the change in your cover letter, or list it like this:

Employer, Location, Job Title, Dates of Employment
Pay Grade 2 (dates)
Pay Grade 1 (dates)

Bulleted list of achievements, etc.

Does that help?

Very nice question! If you are not sure about this aspect, I would recommend turning to professional essay services reviews and expert writers. Reputable companies provide a wide range of writing services, including term paper or CV writing. You can get a consultation there, just choose a company that will satisfy your needs.

All you need to do is just remove the old pay grade and replace it with the new pay scale. This will make your resume look much bold than the previous. Funny part is that you may get better fiance if you are not married yet!

No You Shouldn't NEW
by: Danny Giles

No you should not post it twice. When you list you pay grade, just give them the latest one. And if you get a pay rise, that does B&G Equipment not mean that you are working somewhere else.
