I'm banging my head against the wall trying to update my current position on my resume. I worked for three years at my company, left for two and now I've been back for another three. Additionally, I just got a promotion. My question is, do I include both my old position and my new position and show the two year break in employment or do I combine both tours of duty, since the job I left for and worked for two years will be the next entry on the resume?

I want to keep it short and sweet, but I don't want to make the mistake of leaving something out.

Any insights or examples would be greatly appreciated!

Each position should be listed separately, even if back to back in the same company. So just list

2012.07 - current COMPANY A Position Z
2010.04 - 2012.06 COMPANY B Position Y
2009.01 - 2010.03 COMPANY A Position X
Etc., but using the recommended layout (I am typing this on my phone so skipping precise resume format)
