Online Magazine Publication on Resume?

Postby mikec0824 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 12:51 pm

An article I wrote was posted on the website of the magazine azTeen Magazine. I was just wondering if it would be permissible to put this on my resume.

"The best thing to happen to teens since puberty."

Yeah, I'm sure that'll come across really well.

What context was this published in - are you a journalism major? Is this the only publication/site you've been published in? I'd say if you're a journalism major, it would be better to just highlight your internships/journalism experience, unless you have several articles that have been published that you could highlight.

I agree with the other commenters. You need to decide how important the article's topic is to your potential employers. What are you trying to show with it on your resume?

That being said there are several internet magazines that would look credible. So, it's your judgement call.
