OCI Resume Question

Postby nmcdgt » Mon Jun 25, 2012 10:52 am

Bidding is starting to open up for early OCI and job fairs, and I was wondering what to do with my internship this summer for my resume. I have a quick 2-line description of my current internship on my resume (name of organization, title, May 2012-August 2012). Do I need to go ahead and put some description of the work I've done so far? I wasn't sure if I needed to expand upon it yet since I still have 6 weeks left of the internship, and I didn't want to give a half-assed list of the work I've done.

TL;DR - how do you guys recommend listing your current internship on your resume? complete with description of work youve done so far, or just title and dates until summer is over.

I have a description of the work I've done so far. Some people are a month or more into the internships, so you should have had some substantial work by now.

The person I spoke to at our career services told me that since this was my only legal work experience, it should be the most descriptive thing on my resume. So the job I held for two years I described in one line, and for my current position I dragged it out for 4 lines and I had only worked here 2 weeks when I was given that suggestion.
