Resume Question - Where to put # of Hours Worked?

Postby clint4law » Tue Oct 20, 2009 1:13 am

Some schools require you to provide a resume that includes the number of hours per week devoted to each position.....where exactly do you put it? How do you phrase it?
Thanks

Anything more specific?

I'd assume that if a school required such info, they'd leave a space for it. Also, I don't know how to say "hours/week" any other way than in "hours/week"

After listing out all my undergraduate employment, I put a single line underneath it that looked something like this:

Hours/Week: Freshman - X; Sophomore - X; etc

did you put it right under the name of the organization?

No, I did it under the entire undergraduate employment section. I just wanted to show them how many total hours of undergraduate employment I did each year. Didn't break it down by each job. I only did that if they asked me to do so on the application itself.

It seems like every single school I applied to asked for a breakdown on their app. I didn't include it on my resume.
