SHOULD A STUDENT ADD A CANCELLED INTERNSHIP TO THEIR RESUME?

I wanted to share this great article with you on whether students should add cancelled internships to their resume.

I am advising my clients to absolutely add the internship to the resume because it shows that they were initially accepted for the position.

Many college students had to go through a rigorous interview process to land this role and it’s important to show on their resume that they were selected above other candidates for this opportunity.
It should be written like this on the resume:

Company ABC, location
Name of position, Internship offer accepted. Rescinded due to COVID-19 – Summer 2020

For more information on how to position your resume for this loss and continue to search for other opportunities, please reach out to me at careerconnectionsnj.com and connect with me on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/lmarkon/. I am available seven days a week and all initial consultations are free.
