    Keeping it Relevant

      • Student Observer at Stanford Hospital > 5 years worth of babysitting

      • If you have one relevant experience… JUICE IT.

    • No more than 3 experience blurbs – too spread out.

    • RELEVANT ≠ Marketing Experience for a Finance Internship

    • Don’t be afraid to be mysterious…
