App. Empl. Section - Same job, different summer

Postby KremeCheez » Mon Dec 05, 2011 11:15 pm

I worked the summer after my HS graduation and the summer after my Fr. year of college at the same employer, but did not work there during the school year.
The summers after my So. and Jr, and then full-time after graduation, I worked at my next employer.
How would you address the Start and Finish dates for these?
Should I enter each summer as "New Employer" given that my employment started, stopped, then started again?

On the applications I just listed it as one big continuous start to finish, but on my resume I said Summers of 2010, 2011, etc.

I did the same thing. People will understand that it was seasonal employment.
