I am currently changing up my CV to apply for some consulting applications. Several questions came up in the process, where I'd like to have your advice on:
1. I have some entrepreneurial experience in gaming. Basically, I have together with a colleague designed a program that allows us to make money in the game. My colleague later sold the program when I left. There are two problems I see: 1) I do not have any proof for my story and 2) The progam is kind of “cheating” in the game and by the rules of the game not allowed. Do you think it would be a good idea to write this in my CV at all? I can't think of another time where I put an idea into action to show my entrepreneurial spirit
2. I quit my job and had a full gap year where I mainly tried to build a portfolio of stocks with the aim of beating a predefined benchmark. My questions now are: 1) Would you mention this in your CV - I spend a lot of time on the portfolio, but unfortunately did not beat the benchmark and 2) I don't have any proof aside from a graph of my portfolio performance. Would you include this in the pdf with your degree, transcript, letter of rec. ?
Many thanks in advance!
