I’m trying to fix my resume, so I can be fully prepared if more layoffs happen at ACN. I really want to include client names, rather than a long description. I know about the NDAs, but what if we’re not disclosing confidential info and the partnership is public? What do you guys suggest? I really want my resume to be noticed.

What does your employment agreement or code of conduct say? Probably “no” I’m on the outside now and have hired ex-consultants. If I saw a resume with client names and project details, I’d bin it. Shows you can’t be trusted. What you did is far more important than who you did it for. The client name should not be the most impressive part of your resume.

Honestly don’t be goofy about giving clues that ID the client. “Large Bay Area Social Media network” is the same as just saying Facebook. Just stick to what matters: “Growth stage healthcare firm” or “Global food and bev company” is fine.

Facebook actually has no problem saying you worked for them as long as you make it clear you were a contingent worker and not an employee though.

No.

Should I just include the project title and dates with no client description. Or include client description? With the description resume seems very long

You can always take a page from proposal resumes. "Major Pharmaceutical company" "Large International Hospitality company" And such

You can do small name drops in the final interviews, but its unessasary, but saying things like a Major w.e A major fortune 100 or 500 company should be sufficient

Don’t you mean when more happen

Hi guys, I am due to start working at EY soon within audit. I will be commuting to the office by train when in the Birmingham office. This will be from Leicester.

When not in the office I would prefer to drive to clients, not sure if me being in Leicester affects whether they will tell me to suck up an extended commute? Would a mileage claim be from the office to the client? Thanks!
