I don't know, but I'm not sure neither employers nor school consider that as work experience. :confused:

hi meggs ,
You may like to add summer jobs or something for those of us who have 1-2 months on/off instead of us putting it down in less than a year.
just a suggestion.:D
good going.

Hey Meggs..

Great poll! :clap: And surprising results.. Its a relief to see Im not the only one with work experience that amounts to zilch.

I don't think internship counts as work experience... :confused: But I could be wrong. Anyhow, I don't think the interviewing comittee gives it too much weightage since it's compulsory and will be a common factor with all applicants.

Yes, you get paid, but it is still part of your education and requirements to get a degree. Isn't it? :confused:

You're right elementz. But you could add your temporal jobs and add them together, and choose the options that equals that total amount. I guess the fact that is on/off doesn't matter, what matters is the total time they add up to. :confused:


I totally forgot about optional summer internships and externships. Are those considered as work experience????.
