Updating Resume for Spring

Postby Daaltaraan » Tue Nov 08, 2016 4:29 pm

I'm just curious how I should handle some information. Next spring, I am part of a school program that sends students to DC to take classes and also work a full-time membership. I included that information on my applications but I didn't know where I was going to intern but now I that I will be interning at Heritage. I feel like this is a better soft for me as a KJD but how do include info on my resume about a job that I won't start till January?

If the job isn't starting until January, it doesn't belong on your resume until January. The only place it might belong is under any kind of honors/achievements category you have under your education section.

That said, no one's going to care. This won't make a difference on your application.

Is a great program. Enjoy, but it won't make a difference.

Kinda relevant to this topic so gonna post here...

Hey everyone,

I began submitting applications about a month ago. During that time, I had just moved to Colorado and was wrapping up a temporary/remote work position that was not extremely law school relevant (working as an assistant for small real estate company). A few weeks ago, I started my new position working for the Colorado DNR within the Parks and Wildlife department. I am working in land conservation as a program assistant to the legal team. Since I am planning to pursue environmental law, this is a great and very relevant experience.

My question... I have not heard back from any schools yet (early still I know), so I was wondering if I should send an updated resume with this new job included?

Would love anyone's feedback/thoughts and knowledge to if there is a specific protocol (outside of what the specific schools require).

Thanks in advance!
