Resume after being promoted?

Scrubbed Updated Resume.doc

So I got promoted earlier this year. Basically, it comes with more projects and responsibilities and I'm the lead on most everything for anything security that isn't outsourced. I wasn't 100% sure how to reflect that on my resume. As you can see, I didn't want to duplicate anything so I just added the couple extra things for my new title. Thoughts on everything? What should I modify?

    i usually only add the latest role and duties with company and talk about it further during the interview ( bragging of how i was successful and moved up ladders in company.

    Good point, maybe I do that. Makes it so everything I do is all in one set of bullet points rather than them having to go back and forth.

    I'm not a big fan of listing only the latest thing. When you work for company A in position TIER3 for 3 years, then promoted to TIER4 for the past 2 months, but put it down like you were TIER4 for 3yr and 2 mo, I feel lied to.

    With the way you have this formatted, there's nothing wrong with listing it as a "new" position and just mention that you were promoted inhouse, not a "left and came back" sort of thing. I personally like it as posted just fine. No one will get confused when they see "Company 1" listed twice in succession.

    My opinion is that any time you have a major change in responsibilities, that denotes a new "job." It also helps give the reviewer a delineation that your duties changed, and a clear upward progression, which is a great thing to see.

    I would format it this way:


    Company X (09/2016 - Current)
    Security Engineer 01/18 - Current
    details...
    details...
    details...


    Security Analyst 09/2016 - 01/18
    details...
    details...
    details...


    Company Y (06/2016 - 09/2016)


    And so on and so forth...

    Hmm okay, then sounds like my resume looks decent the way it is. Got passed over pretty quickly for a job I applied for that I met all the requirements, so I was just double-checking to make sure my resume looked ok. Guessing there was another factor there.
