My company recently had a recall and I'm not sure if this is good or bad for my job experience, I supported during the recall and I learned a lot. 

Should I include it into my resume or not? If so, how should I write it? 

 

Thanks!

I hear you, I was with a large company who went through a horrible recall situation. A good recruiter should be doing their homework and would be able to check you timeline against Acme cereal to see you worked their when the recall occurred. I've always just brought it up during the interview process


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

If you were nervous about implications (depending on the type of company you were applying to), you could always skim over it with a short blurb such as "Active member of ABC Recall & Withdrawal Team coordinating product isolation, retrievals, customer notifications, and corrective actions associated with mock and real-time product recalls."

 

However, if you were heavily involved or instrumental in coordinating a *successful* recall, I would definitely add specifics to your resume. There's no shame in righting a wrong.

Hello,

remember that what you put on your resume, should always be seen/assessed by the recruiter has a value for the position.

You have to be ready to argue in positive manner what you did and what you learn (from the recall process it self and the corrective action to avoid it again).
