  • Listing Future Jobs on Resume

    I have accepted a temporary/seasonal LE position with a federal agency with a start date the first week of May. Should I list this position on my resume now as I apply for permanent positions with this agency? Or should I wait till I actually start the position?

    It is something you want them to know, but in my opinion it doesn't belong on a resume. Somewhere else, such as an application, letter of introduction, or the oral section of the testing. There is always a
    section on an app where they provide space for anything that you want them to know that wasn't specifically asked.
    Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist"

      In most cases your resume should chronologically list positions occupied and held. Since you don’t yet work there I would not list it.

        Agreed. Don't list it until you've actually worked, or are working the job.

          Yep...................you have absolutley know idea if you actually will ever work the job.......until you have.


          If you read the stories about people "promised" or "accepted for" a position who never actually got the job.......you would understand
