Resume Q

Postby eagle2a » Mon Jun 20, 2016 6:56 pm

Applying for fall 2l internships, I'm splitting my summer and have completed the first internship and have that on my resume. Can I put the second one down as well or is that a no?

Yep


Would I just put down the position but with no description?

Yup - in the dates portion of it they'll see you haven't started it. If you know what you'll be doing you can put bullets down but you might not know.

Yep. No description needed, but if you do include a (very brief, general) description, just use future tense instead of present or past tense (e.g. "Will participate in all aspects of civil litigation at a plaintiff-side firm" instead of "Participated" in it, or whatever)
