Incorporating Multiple Roles at Same Company in Resume

Currently in the process of updating my resume and seeking some advice on how to effectively present multiple roles at the same company. Specifically, I worked as an equity analyst in one sector for six months and transitioned to a macro analyst role for the subsequent six months.

I'm uncertain about the best way to structure this on my resume.

Here are some considerations I have in mind:

Option 1

Company Name: XYZ Corporation

Equity Analyst(Month/Year - Month/Year)

  • Bullet point 1
  • Bullet point 2
  • ...

Company Name: XYZ Corporation

Macro Analyst(Month/Year - Month/Year)

  • Bullet point 1
  • Bullet point 2
  • ...

Option 2

Company Name: XYZ Corporation

Equity Analyst(Month/Year - Month/Year)

  • Bullet point 1
  • Bullet point 2
  • ...

Macro Analyst(Month/Year - Month/Year)

  • Bullet point 1
  • Bullet point 2
  • ...

Option 3

Company Name: XYZ Corporation

Analyst(Month/Year - Month/Year)

  • Bullet point 1 (Equity Analyst)
  • Bullet point 2 (Equity Analyst)
  • Bullet point 3 (Macro Analyst)
  • Bullet point 4 (Macro Analyst)
  • ...

My primary concern is that listing them as separate roles might inadvertently convey a limited duration of experience in each role. I want to ensure that the cumulative time and depth of my roles are apparent to potential employers. Also, I'm currently in the process of looking for a full time role after graduating in May, so I want to make sure I have a strong resume.
Appreciate any help.

 

Based on the most helpful WSO content, here's how I'd suggest you structure your resume:

Option 2 seems to be the most effective way to present your experience. It clearly shows that you've held two distinct roles within the same company, which can demonstrate your versatility and ability to adapt to different responsibilities.

Company Name: XYZ Corporation

Equity Analyst (Month/Year - Month/Year) - Bullet point 1 - Bullet point 2 - ...

Macro Analyst (Month/Year - Month/Year) - Bullet point 1 - Bullet point 2 - ...

This way, you're not only highlighting the breadth of your experience, but also the depth of your skills in each role. It's important to remember that recruiters want to see your progression and the range of your abilities.

Just remember to keep it concise and relevant. And don't worry about the duration of each role - what matters more is the quality of your experience and what you've learned from it.

Bump - I'm curious too.

Honestly, anytime I have held multiple roles with an organization, I always list my most recent title with the start date that I joined the organization. Then, during the interview, I clarify the different titles held with the organization. I have no idea if this is the proper way, but it has never hurt my application/interview process.
