I'm listing all my work experiences on resume but for my current job I added a little label which reads "Currently Working". For some reason this doesn't seem right to me. What's the best way to specify this ?

    "currently employed" is more formal but "working" works, too. – user98990 Feb 28 '15 at 6:15
  • If it's a section title I'd suggest "Current employment". – Hot Licks Mar 1 '15 at 13:08

I would suggest employed;

persons who are employed full-time or part-time during a specified payroll period. Temporary employees and those on paid-leave are included in this definition.

  • I guess an example would help here, registry.jsonresume.org/mudassirali When you hover on that little green dot. It should say that the person is "Currently Working" here – Mudassir Ali Feb 28 '15 at 9:17

    When quoting something it is helpful to use the quote formatting, so people can tell you are using someone else's words. – Matt E. Эллен Mar 1 '15 at 11:21

  • @Mudassir Ali In that case the word Currently would suffice, I believe. – sojourner Mar 1 '15 at 11:51

If you have shown beginning and end dates on your prior jobs, you can simply put this (e.g.) for your current job:

  • April 2012–present

(by the way, that's an en-dash, not a hyphen. Ranges of dates are separated by en-dashes.)

  • Yes, I do display that. So, if you look at this registry.jsonresume.org/mudassirali, I want a way to visually display that the person is currently associated with that organization. So, I display a little green dot which on hover would now read "Currently Working", but is it fine or can there be a more formal word for it? – Mudassir Ali Feb 28 '15 at 9:18

    Sorry, not going to advise you on software development; you seem plenty adept at that. You started this question disingenuously claiming to have a concen about YOUR resume. I will mention, though that the verb "set up" has a space in it. – Brian Hitchcock Feb 28 '15 at 9:27
  • Sorry, I should have compiled the question better. The question is still about my resume but I'm making a web based resume template which could potentially be used by anyone and that's the reason why I was looking for a formal word. Thanks for educating me about the en-dash, wasn't aware of that distinction before :-) – Mudassir Ali Mar 2 '15 at 7:08

How about working? Having a paying job; employed.
