What tense should I use with in the past?

1- In the past, I worked for this company but now I work In another company.

2- In the past, I have worked for this company but now I work In another company.

Hi, Subhajit—The past tense works better there, but the present perfect is possible. Specific past-time adverbials don't work with the present perfect. However, "in the past" is generic enough that it is not unacceptable.
