Default Putting company name in resume

One of the common arrangements in the working industry is that a person is an employee of agency company A and works for client company B.

I noticed that many people put the client company's name in their resume's employment history instead of the agency company.

Also, some people also put the parent company's name in their resume's employment history when they are actually working under the subsidiary company.

Is there flexibility to do so?

Its frowned upon ' try to be as trabsparent as possible on your resume. Will definitely leave a bad taste in hiring managers mouth if they have to dig it out of you.

So many people like to flaunt. Just look at those exchange students, 1 term in overseas they just claim their degree from there. LOL

I don't know what does client / agency company means but parent company's name instead of the actual company that they're working in?

That's stupid as **** and a huge red flag for HR...

If you are under A payroll but working in B, of cause put B in resume la.

What they want to know is your exposure and exp in B duh.

Nothing to hide, just be upfront and put “contract” beside B or when they ask in meeting.

Jiak ba liao u all, this type of thing also want to debate. Most of the time, we also interview the candidate before agency onboard.
