Contract work - Company names in resume?
Question - over the past several years I've worked several contract jobs. I've always followed a "rule" I've heard to never put company names on a resume. Today I'm questioning that, in part because I know I have a habit of understating what I've done.
I don't want to be seen as a name dropper, but if I've managed the development of interfaces between SAP and an external system, it makes a big difference whether it was GE (not a real customer) or Bob's bait shop. I feel like I'm leaving out part of my value and experience in corporate environments by not saying who I was actually working for.
The way I'm thinking:
September 2007-February 2009: Contractor, ABC Consulting, Chicago, IL.
Assigned to ConAgra Food. Managed development and testing of interface between RedPrairie DLx-Warehouse and SAP using standard iDocs.
Bullets follow. Again, not a real customer.
