    "to date/to present"?

    2015 to date
    2015 to present


    I would love to say that I have been working here (2015 to this day). What is the correct word choice here?

    You can also say "I have been working here since 2015."

    Re: "to date/to present"?

    What's the context? I would use to date on a job application, but not in general conversation.

    Hi Tdol;

    The context is an academic CV.
