When you work for a company that goes through a merger, it is important that you list all company names and years of change on your resume. This ensures that potential employers can accurately track and verify your employment history.
- Create a list of the company names during your employment
List each name of the company and the year each name became effective.
- Determine if your mobility changed during each company name
Decide if your responsibilities changed with the merger or if they stayed the same.
- Add the company to the employment history on your resume
If your responsibilities changed with the merger, add each company separately, and describe your job function for each. If your responsibilities did not change with the merger, add one listing that denotes the merger, including the change in name and the year.
