how to list extra-curricular activites on apps?
« on: January 06, 2005, 02:20:48 PM »
i'm curious about how folks listed extra-curricular activites/community service on their applications.  did your resume include these activities?  what about online applications that specifically give you a space to list them?  did you just list the name of the organization?  what about dates, descriptions, titles held, etc?

thanks!

I listed them on the application and then included an extracurriculars attachment with dates, positions held, descriptions, etc.

did you do the attachment as part of your resume, or did you do it as a completely separate document?

I just typed "refer to resume," unless the school expressly said not to...wonder if that was a mistake...oh well!

Completely separate attachment. I don't really think that extracurriculars belong on a resume unless you have no work experience to put on there. Then they make fine filler, but otherwise, I'd put them separately to avoid overcrowding the resume.
