I was promoted into a management position in a previous job and then was demoted for breaking company policy. I stayed with the company for a few months afterward. How do I handle the demotion in my resume and job interviews?

Answer:

Addressing the issue in your resume is not a problem, said Ann Robbins, senior vice president of Right Management Consultants.

You can give an overview of your employers without having to list dates for each job you held there.

In other words, your resume might list each company where you worked, with the most recent one first, and one time period for your entire history there, such as August 1994 to December 1998. For each company, you might list your job titles with descriptions of what you accomplished in those positions. Start with the highest-level position first.
