Resume Hell: How to cite a consultant position when you can't name the client? (Less inside: identifying details smudged.)
posted by scratch to Work & Money (19 answers total)
I have a freelance gig working for ZYX Company on a project for Joe Smith's Super-Impressive Industry Leader, Inc. (hereinafter, "the Client"). I had to sign an NDA, but it kills me that I can't put the Client's name on my resume, because it would be a much-needed boost. MUCH needed. So how do I properly word this? My point being that there's no point in citing ZYX Company because they're just the contractor, and their name is not impressive. Right now the heading on this part of the resume says "Data Consultant, ZYX Company, 2009-present"; below that, the description goes "Evaluate and critique horse feathers information for leading hovercraft industry company."
Is "leading" enough? Or "major"? How about "industry dominant"? (I really like that one.) First time I've ever had to deal with this situation. Please help the needy this holiday season. Thank you.
