You can't reflect a promotion on your resume until you actually get it, regardless of what type of responsibilities you had

I understood it as asking how do you reflect the change in duties when you were already performing above your level and then were promoted to that level.

I also interpreted the question as A1 did, for what it’s worth. Given the clarification, it sounds like you’re adding a new line/section on your resume for your new title, rather than updating the section for your firm? Depends what else you have on your resume, but I might actually lean towards the latter - just having your most recent accomplishments under the firm section, and titles delineated out on one line rather than multiple. Is that a possibility? Then your accomplishments are reflective of your entire time at Firm X and don’t need to map to your promotion periods and responsibilities.

A1 - how does that answer the question?

The question seems to be asking whether you can reflect Senior on your resume prior to the actual promotion to Senior, since you had already been performing Senior-level responsibilities. The answer is you have to reflect it in your resume as the actual promotion date - has nothing to do with your responsibilities. If you're asking something different, you'll need to clarify.

The question is if you are promoted from Consultant to Senior Consultant - assuming it has gone into effect - and you remain on the same project with the same responsibilities you had prior to the promotion because you were brought into the project “as an acting senior” how do you reflect that on your resume. Assuming you wouldn’t repeat the same responsibilities as Consultant and then again for Senior Consultant. SC1 - thanks a lot - figured that is how I’d have to do it.

OP as time goes on and your work progresses you’ll have more stuff to put in the senior role that shows progression

Should focus more on accomplishments for your resume than job duties anyway. What did you accomplish prior to promotion. What did accomplish afterwards... I guess it’s only a problem if you’re planning on leaving before getting some senior run time

Not sure anyway what the big shift in role would be from Consultant to Sr consultant. Staffing-wise there’s no real difference for me... disclaimer: joined the strat. consulting game directly as Mgr

I’m sharing this to encourage anyone who’s been on the fence about starting their own thing. Go for it. Consulting will always be there if you need to fall back.
