How and where do I best address in my resume that in my first and current job I worked full time for about 1.5 years, before I took a one year baby break. Then I worked for another year first for 20 hours a week, later 24 hours per week before I had my second child and another year baby break (Taking one year off for staying home with a baby is the norm in Germany). Now I have been back in my job for 9 months and increased my hours from 24 to 30 hours a week.
For the moment I am writing something like this:
01/2008 - now: job title, responsibilities (here I am tacking on that I am currently working 30 hours p. week)
- accomplishment 1
- accomplishment 2
07/2009-08/2010: baby break
09/2011-10/2012: baby break
I want to apply for full-time work now. How can I improve this? Should I also mention the part-time work in my cover letter?
