Resume-worked at same employer 2 different times

Posted

I have a question about my resume I hope someone has advice about. I worked for 2 different hospitals at 2 different times. When I list my employment history chronologically, I think it accentuates the number of employers I have had. Even though I returned to the same employer to work those 2 different times (as opposed to having totally different employers each time).

Would it be professional to list the facility one time but where you have the dates of employment, just put in the 2 different spans of time? Then under the facility name cluster your responsibilities?

I hope this makes sense.

I know what you mean ... and I don't think there would be anything wrong with it as long as you clearly listed the jobs and dates as separate. The LAST thing you would want is for it to appear as if you were lying or trying to cover something up.

I've had the same experience working for the same place at two different spans of time. That's exactly what I did- put two separate dates in the one spot for employment. When asked about it at my interview I just explained how I had such a great experience working there the first time, my employer was delighted to have me back. ;)
