I am preparing resume for application, and cannot decide how I would show extra curricular activities.
About a half of my extra curricular activities are related to my work place. For instance, being a member of first responders at work, or mentoring summer intern, are not my work responsibilities but done at work. Then I do have another half of ECs outside work, like community service, non-paid financial and credit advisory, non-paid translation service, etc.
I dumped all school related activities to Education section. I was going to put EC at work to Experience section. Then I face dilemma where to put EC outside work and school as I don't think omitting them is a good idea.
Will making separate extra curricular section and dumping all EC (except the ones done while in school) there be a good idea? I have been thought for some reason that having separate EC section is kinda weird, but it may be my false feeling.
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
I would recommend that you keep only highlights of your role/work profile and professional achievements in the Work section of your resume. You can put your extracurricular activities as a separate section. Try to see if you are able to categorize your activities under different heads - for instance 'community service', 'mentoring', 'event management' and so on.
Coming to your school activities - remember that everything has an expiry date. Pick out the biggest and most relevant activities you've been engaged in - esp if some of them are more than 4 years old.
