Dear Experts, During my matriculation I worked at the campus publications all four years, and was paid for them. That experience is listed on my resume as such. But my question is, when asked how much experience I have in my field can I say four, even if I never worked outside of those campus organizations? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#199 Yes, everywhere u worked over last 10 - 15 years counts as experience. The key is how u list it. Match terms of J.D. (@kgrantcareers) Q#199 I would just make the distinction between full-time and part time experience, if your job wasn't full time hours. (@gradversity) Q#199 If you worked 4 years and got experience that way, then you should say "4 years." Don't see the mixup...? (@beneubanks) Q#199 Category "Experience" 4 paid work w/dates; u do have 4 yrs PT exper; category "volunteer exp" 4 other. (@juliaerickson) Q#199 Growth experience (paid or otherwise) c/b relevant experience. My vote: claim it. =] (@teenarose) Q#199 4 yrs is stretching it if you were doing it FT (40hrs/week). I'd say 2 yrs represents PT status. (@jtodonnell) Q#199 I think it's disingenuous to claim 4yrs exp when it was just campus papers while you were in college; I don't advise it. (@askamanager) Q#199 A skill is a skill whether gained via paid or volunteer experience. IF skill pertains, then OK on rez.
