What employer name to keep on my resume/ LinkedIn?

Yahoo sea.tac
Jan 28

I have been working as SWE since the original Yahoo! Inc. A series of the name change had me confused what to write on my resume?

Approximate timeline:
2016: Yahoo! Inc.
2017: Yahoo Holdings
2018: Oath Holdings
2019: Verizon Media

I do have the name change documents for each time the company's name has changed. So background checks are not a problem here.

Looking for comments from the hiring managers, the senior engineers, and the recruiters at other companies.

  • I think sticking with Yahoo til the brand is diminished or Verizon does more with it.

  • 1. Yahoo is the better known brand.
    2. Companies owned by another, bigger, company isn't an unusual thing. Think car companies, or closer - linkedin folks keep the brand in their resumes, don't they?

    I work in TA. You could try: Verizon Media (formerly known as Yahoo). Or Yahoo (now Verizon Media). It acknowledges the main one without diminishing the other.
