This one’s short and simple.

Promotions are the first thing the interviewer looks for on your resume. So when you’ve been promoted on the job, don’t make the mistake so many others make and hide it.

What most people do is, under the name of the company they’ve worked at, they put their latest title, then a comma and finally their prior title, as such: Senior Account Manager, Account Manager.

What you’re doing there is hiding your promotion. So instead of bunching these positions, list them as separate jobs, each complete with their own dates and bullet points.
