How should I list freelance jobs on my resume?

I have a full-time job and two free-lance jobs as follows: 1) Job 1-- full-time job 2) Job 2-- freelancer; previously I worked in their office for 2 years (part-time then full-time) 3) Job 3- solely freelance How should I list it on my resume? Should I put consultant? How do I address Job 2 where I was both an in-office worker and a freelance worker? For Job 2, should I list my title as 2003- current (includes both freelance and in-office)? Or, TITLE 2003-2005; Freelance TITLE 2005- Present?

I don't think you have a problem, just list it as is. We are all used to using freelancers and consultants, so it is only fair that you get to list that in your resume.

Personally, I would list it under experience or skills, such as in a functional resume. Check with your local One Stop (formerly Unemployment Office) and they can help you there. Good Luck!!
