Reason for Leaving on Applications?

Postby Josh the Goat » Wed Jul 25, 2007 4:00 pm

I've been filling out applications online, and I'm curious about the "Reason for Leaving" section for previous work experience.

If I had a Summer internship or a semester long internship, and then I left, what should I put in the "Reason for Leaving" box?

End of Internship? End of Summer? End of Semester?

Just curious if anyone had any suggestions.

During summer - "Seasonal Employment" or "Summer Internship"
If an internship just "One Semester Internship"

Katkins, you're extra salty today.

"End of summer" is sufficient. I doubt they care (unless your reason is something like what Katkins stated).
