Resume dates?

Postby BeachedBrit » Sun Oct 24, 2010 2:46 pm

I don't really have months of the year for a lot of the activities I listed on my resume so instead I simply put things like "2009 - 2010" next to stuff, will that be a problem?

It looks highly suspicious to adcoms, b/c they're well aware that "2009-2010" could be "Dec. '09 - Jan. '10." You need to attempt to find months for your activities. Go through old emails, files, and planners. It shouldn't be that difficult. I can't comment on whether it's a C&F issue b/c I'm not an attorney, adcom, or otherwise informed on the policy.

At the very least I would try to identify a time period, like "Fall 2009," but months would be much, much better.
