PT on Resume?

Postby SoCow » Sat Apr 16, 2011 11:38 am

Is it required to note that you are a part-time student on your resume? or can I just leave it blank and let the employer know I'm a part-time student if it comes up in an interview or when they look at my grades? I feel like putting PT on my resume might eliminate me from getting initial interviews.

No, it's not necessary, but it will usually be obvious based on your expected graduation date + employment history.

I list it on my resume. I don't think you have to list it, but I don't know why you want to hide it until the interview. Being a part-time student can work to your advantage because you can work more hours during the academic calendar and your schedule is typically more flexible than full-time students.

this is my thought on this. I left PT off my resume but with my work and grad date the interviewer should be able figure it out at first glance.
