Clarification of "Outside Employment in College".

Postby billharford » Fri Dec 02, 2011 5:27 pm

I'm guessing this has been addressed previously, but I could not find anything using search. The question is as follows, "Indicate nature and amount of any outside employment in college (including both term-time employment and summer work). (maximum characters 300)".

I attended a semester, dropped out, worked three years, then re-enrolled. Is my employment applicable to this question? The question makes it seem as if it asks for any employment concurrent with college enrollment. I don't think there are any other questions regarding employment.

I don't think your WE is what the question is explicitly asking about, but I would mention in anyone. It's a good opportunity to talk about work experience and will (at least partially) explain why you dropped out.

It is asking for any employment you have while you were attending school. If you worked while doing undergrad, how many hours a week were you employed and what were you doing?

Employment during summer vacations...and employment after you graduated from college.

In your case, where you worked at when you dropped out and were not in college all of those years.
