Question with resume
So I've been working with a recruiting agency since January of this year and I'm on my second contract assignment with them. The first one was 8 months, this one should be about 10. The problem is that my intentions is to find direct-hire, permanent placement somewhere and get out of this crappy "temp" job stuff which was suppose to be a "foot in the door" to get back into the IT world. My resume was looking pretty good showing stability and long term commitment until this year, now it's starting to scream "job hopper". I'm about to update it with the second job(contract) but I'm thinking if it's a better idea to just list the recruiting company as the employer, make a note of being a consultant and list the job descriptions of what I did on these contracts. I haven't seen any resumes written this way so I'm not sure if this would be a good idea or if I should just keep all the jobs listed individually.
The goal is to avoid listing a bunch of short term jobs and want to give the image of being a stable, worthy investment for a company. By the way, my experience is with desktop support so the resume is IT related.
What's your thoughts?
