Resume question

Postby awilson11 » Mon Nov 29, 2010 5:01 pm

I have a resume question: I had a job at home that I worked at in high school (at a real estate brokerage). I worked for them again after freshman year, so I could include it as 2005-2008. Should I include it? Or is it going back to high school since I only worked there for about a month in summer after freshman year?

you should put something like May 2005 - Sept 2007, May 2008 - June 2008 to be clear.
It's ok to keep dates as one concurrent time if you only took a break for the summer or something, but saying you worked there for 3 years when it was really 2 years and one month, that's misleading.
