Mark asks: Can I include the logo of an old employer in my CV?

In answer:
Accepting that its probably a copyright item, and you would need permission, my question would be why?

Either you have left that employer/s, or are intending to leave that employer? If they were so great, or are that well known that you feel that your application would be enhanced by enhancing their brand’s reputation, then any new employer will be questioning “why join us?” Plus, it makes little sense if you don’t include every employers logo, and hence will clutter your whole CV.

In summary it seems pointless and raises more questions than gains you traction in getting an interview.

Good Luck!
