Putting work experience (with an international assignment) less than 6 months on CV? Good or bad?

G fragte am 18. Sep 2019 - 3 Antworten

From the tips that I have read are work experiences with an international dimension well appreciated by consulting firms (MBB as well as Tier 2 firms). However, in my case, the specific role (in engineering) was for less than 6 months and I took the decision to quit. I can explain the reason for quitting it. It has nothing to do with the travelling whatsoever and no drama happened. Thus, my question: is it better to leave it out and not mention it on my CV (since I only stayed for a short period) to pass the screening stage or do you think it is better to mention it in order to increase the odds of passing the screening stage .The reasoning behind the latter: it is the only point on my CV that shows that I have worked on an international assignment and that I have no issues with travelling, etc.

Hi,

It would be useful if we had more context, but what I can advise is that you should keep this in your CV as international work experience is valuable. You can position this as an internship or contactor/freelancer work (instead of a full-time job).

Best,

Hi,

Go for it if it:

  • Adds the relevant work experience (e.g. you are an expert in Oil&gas)
  • Adds overall experience (e.g. you'll have 1.5 years in total)

I would position it as an international project

Best!

Hi,

I would say that it depends on your other work experience. If you already have 3+ than leave it behind. If not, than I think it is worth it provided that you achieve something relevant during those 6 months.
