In your post consulting resume do you put each of your positions? Or just the one you recently had? (I.e if you’re a manager now would you put, analyst, senior analyst, associate, and then manager) or would you just show manager even though you were recently promoted and not a manager for 5 years?

Put each position to show progression.

Put the last position and then in parentheses “promoted Month YY”

Just the last role. If you’re that concerned include a bullet that includes some language that indicates internal growth at the firm but you don’t need to say staff (2010-2012), senior (2012-2015), Manager and all that.

And you don’t list projects or clients. Go with overall experience and any areas of focus

like

Depends on total experience, number of firms etc. If you're still relatively green you'd probably do individual positions

Just one. Or there wouldn’t be enough space

But then you are saying you are a manager for 5 years, which is not true... right?

always show whatever was latest.. weird that you don't already know this

Well I’ve never had to look for a job since I’ve spent 5 years in consulting. If I get someone’s resume and they show a bunch of years as manager I would be suspect. Soooo... yea I don’t know that’s why I am asking, not to get smart ass sarcastic responses.

Yea I don’t know if I should list out projects and industry or overall experience. Definitely takes up a lot of space so I want to be careful

I should of asked for only MBB to answer this 🤦🏻‍♂️

Then call them up

Put only the most recent position. If you’re worried about misleading the company, you can highlight your career progression briefly in your elevator/intro pitch during interviews.

Do you have some promotions that are bigger or more important than others? For example at Bain you could do “associate consultant -> consultant -> manager” and skip the intermediate “senior associate consultant” and “case team leader”

I put the company name, then a sequential list of my titles/ dates, then I provide a list of projects/ work activity...if you held four positions, put ‘em all.

What are you greatest pet peeves with job candidates? I've heard some technical recruiters often get low-effort applications either from candidates who don't fit a job profile or are from a location too infeasible for relocation. I'm wondering what are the recurring issues you've encountered from the recruiting process, or things you wish could be improved.

I’ve started to block recruiters on LinkedIn for the last month. I can’t tell you how many just send out some generic email with a job that has nothing to do with mine. I understand the pressures of recruiting / smile and dial culture but at least be in the ball park. The best is when you speak to them and they go “oh this job requires 7-10 years exp, so you have that?” Just LOOK AT THE RESUME. I’ll probably never work with an agency ever again after the last few months.
