Worth including a press release illustrating a job success?

Postby jac101689 » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:38 pm

Hi, all. Hope your application processes are going well; just don't displace me!

I am an AmeriCorps*VISTA Leader. I collaborated with a fellow member to get a press release published on a New-England-wide training I led development, planning, and execution of. It ended up in a decent-sized publication and there's even a picture of me (not that adcomms will give a jack-hoot). Do you think it's worth including on my resume or in some other part of my application?

Let me know what ya think.

Thanks.

No. But in the job description on your resume, you can mention that you planned and led a regional training thing.

This. The more extraneous stuff you include in your application, the less force each individual element has. And they really don't want these things added on, because as soon as they let you attach one thing like that, everyone thinks they have a ton of impressive credentials they should back up with extraneous paper.
