I know this question has been asked before, but I didn't find it asked by a UG student.
I'm a senior undergrad student, and I want to start communicating with professors in Canada and the US in order to get a funded MSc position for fall 2021.
Being an undergrad, I haven't published any papers. However, this summer I've been working as a research assistant intern, and our project has reached an state where I've started to write the actual paper as the first author. Unfortunately, the paper is not likely to be ready for when I'll be trying to find an advisor, but I think since it is my one and only research experience, and it has reached the state of being publishable, it should be included in my CV!
So, what do you think I should do?
Add my time as an intern as a "research experience" with some explanation about the paper?
Add the paper in a separate section in my CV?
Thanks in advance!
