I was paid...I know that I should list it as employment, that's not the issue. I just didn't know if it would be a conflict of interest or not good experience to list since it is working for family. Would they see that as a cop-out, or a wasted experience? I want to make sure the items I list are going to be looked highly upon.
Also, if I worked at different restaurants in undergrad should I group them all together? I have enough slots to list them separately, but do they care to see a separate entry for 3 different restaurant jobs? Would it be better to have a separate entry for 3 jobs at restaurants and 15 activities, or 13 activities and them all grouped together?
