Resume

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 28, 2011 7:34 am

I'm reworking my resume for OCI and mass mailing and can't decide where I need to put a couple of jobs. I'm going to be a TA and RA this fall, and my career services office said to go ahead and list those on my resume. My listings are currently in chronological order, so those two would now appear at the top. Is this ok, or should I find another way to list them so that my law firm jobs appear at the top of the employment section?

My Career Services office told me to either list it under employment but with no description, or to put it under activities. I did the latter and the line for RA looks like this: "Research Assistant, Professor John Smith (Fall 2011)"

For a TA position I assume you would do the same but just include the class, so something like "Teaching Assistant, Professor John Smith (Fall 2011 Torts)."

According to a couple of the books I read (Ivey guides including), if you have extensive law firm experience, you could include a "Legal Experience" section and a "Professional Experience" section - this way you could have the law firm jobs first
