Which Company Name Do I Use If My Employer Was Bought Out?

by Amy
(State College, PA)

My job experience was with Omega Bank, as it was know at the time. A few months after leaving it was bought out by First National Bank. Under what company name do I list my work experience?

ANSWER: Your job should always be listed with the company name in current use. But use your cover letter to explain your history with the original company.
