Moving to a developing market brings you up a rung or four.

Resumes are only seen by people you send them to. LinkedIn is a public, appropriate set of personal billboards of experience.
Your Linkedin is going to be one of the first things anyone who googles you sees. It's invaluable. It's a free and easy way to market yourself. It doesn't replace a resume in most circumstances, but it's a tool everyone should use more than they do.

I personally google just about everyone that I am dealing with on regular basis and always check their linkedin if they have one.

Anyone got an example of what they consider to be an excellent LinkedIn profile? I am in the camp of people who never gave them much thought. Most people I work with and have come across have at least a few lines but it is not something critical.

So since my promotion officially kicks in on April 1st and I am a believe in keeping my resume up to date even though I have no intention of sending it to anyone...

How do you guys like to handle multiple positions at the same company?
It is not a big change (just adding Senior to my title) but right now my resume only has a single title per job/internship.

Right now it is basically
Code:
COMPANY                                 City, St
Job Title              January 1900 to June 1900
 * Bullet 1
 * Bullet 2

COMPANY TWO                             City, St
etc...

Seems to me the best way to work it in would be:
Code:
COMPANY                                 City, St
New Job Title               June 1900 to Present
Job Title              January 1900 to June 1900
 * Bullet 1
 * Bullet 2

COMPANY TWO                             City, St

In this case, the job responsibilities are about the same so that would work...if the responsibilities change significantly would it be better to add bullets under the new job before the old title? This seems like it would be better but a little messier than doing somehting like skipping the description for the old title.

^^ That's a good question. Since I'll be working in another dept with almost completely different responsibilities, I'm not sure how to handle that either.

I have it basically as two separate jobs on my resume with different dates, titles, and responsibilities. I have mine formatted so its basically:

Company Location
Title Dates

so I just added another set of title and dates. For promotions, you just put what your highest title was, but in my case I switched to a whole different department, so it was important to note the distinction.

So if the responsibilities are different (mine aren't...basically just higher level stuff from the current level with a higher billing rate)...I'd try do do something like this

Code:
COMPANY                                 City, St
New Job Title               June 1900 to Present
 * Bullet 1
 * Bullet 2
 * Bullet 3
Job Title              January 1900 to June 1900
 * Bullet 1
 * Bullet 2

COMPANY TWO                             City, St

Giving a little more content to the more recent roles but enough background on the previous role where it is clear that it was different from the current role and they don't have to guess at what you actually did.

no, I wouldnt really put it like that.

Like

year 1 analyst: analyzed shit
year 3 senior analyst: analyzed higher level shit?

I think its implied. Unless your really changing positions or taking on different roles, I would just roll it all up to highest level possible.

So

XYZ Corp
Senior Analyst. Analyzed a wide range of shit.

Yes, I was just thinking that is what I would put if I were in Eason's position with a significant change in responsibilities.

On mine, I will just keep a similar set of descriptions but list both positions (I would like the resume to show that I was promoted quickly) like in my first example. The next promotion however would require a new set of descriptions; some of the basic tasks would be the same but the would be completely new things like client interaction and supervision of people.

I'm thinking of doing it like this: Lecturer (Exercise Science); Fitness Club Administrator, Coach: Hong Kong Baptist University - United International College; June 2011-Present •\tblah blah •\tblah blah •\tblah blah Lecturer (English I/II): Hong Kong Baptist University - United International College; August 2010-June 2011 •\tblah blah •\tblah blah •\tblah blah Because I put my title first on my CV, not the company... but I'm sure prof. fab can tell me the industry standard way of doing it.

Mine looks basically like this: Company - Job/Senior Job/Regional Job words words words, was promoted to the role of senior job which involved words words words. Was subsequently offered additional regional responsibilities that include words words words.

just printed my resume out on both a granite and plain white 32 lb resume paper. I'm applying for at jobs/internships, should I just stick with the white or is the granite worth it? it's subtle but I'm worried it still might be affected.

Fuck so annoying. Just use a reasonable regular white laser paper. Stand out through your resume's content, not appearance.

Here is what I have done:

COMPANY City, St
Senior Analyst January 1900 to June 1900
* Bullet 1
* Bullet 2
* Worked as a Jr. Analyst for two years prior to being promoted to Senior Analyst.

I always worry about length (that's what she said) on resumes. So if I can avoid taking up a lot of space I do. I would say unless the additional responsibilities are key to getting the next job-leave them off. Just showing that you received a promotion is huge. You want to make that clear on you resume.
