Family Business on Resume

Postby hihowareyou » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:18 pm

I'll be starting law school this fall, from what I've read you want to have your resume for 1L summer jobs ready early on in the semester. I was going over mine and when I was applying to schools I put my "work" at my dad's business on there. It's a pretty small business (5 employees). I am there a lot and do mostly managerial work. I asked my dad and he told me to put assistant manager down. Should I keep this on my resume when I'm applying for real jobs. I do work but I'm not officially an employee or get paid.

Which would include tax returns, right? This would make me nervous for C&F
