Looks like I'll need your assistance. YLB's link didn't work on the second try.

If I can interject...

I think it looks good, it means you're valued and you can move up in a company. People like that.

of course you can!

awesome, thanks! two of them are in the same department as well, so hopefully that'll make it look better too.

it's just as well if i removed the other one as well, because i certainly wouldn't want them to try to track down my old boss from that job. i'm sure she'd give me a good recommendation because she's professional and all that, but i didn't like her

How long have you been with the company?

For the record, for every resume rule you read, you can find something to contradict it. What if you had a 4th job years ago that gave you a skill set pertinent to the job you are applying for. Do not let the rules of resumes bog you down. Just make sure the thing reflects the breadth of your career/the skills you've acquired....and tailor the resume for the specific job you are applying for, if possible.

Good luck.

If each position at the company has been a move up, so to speak, then it actually will look good.

How long have you been with the company? Do you think the job you had prior to joining your current employer would add value?

EDIT - April and NSW pretty much said the same things.

Oh, and, I know you did not ask me, Khan, but as PFan can tell you.....I'm an insanely high powered executive.

hey, it's no problem. you know i don't mind your input, being an important head honcho and all

to answer yours and phanan's question, i've worked with this company for nearly 2 1/2 years.

luckily, the past three jobs i've had are the most applicable for the job i'm wanting to apply for.

oh yeah. the first job i had was basically entry level crap, then i transferred to this department. then i got a promotion. this department i'm in now at least seems to be pretty similar to the department of the job i'd want to apply for.

and nah, not really. although if i was applying for something in data entry, then i'd be good for including that

I'd stick with those three, then, and just be prepared to possibly talk about your jobs prior to those three.
