Background: Undergrad applying to PhD CS Programs in the US
I had done a blogging internship in my sophomore year and I had written 10 blogs during the tenure. All the articles are relevant to my domain and are balanced between technicality and general information on the domain.
Why I want to put it in my CV:
- The blogs were supervised by someone who has been a "linkedin" top speaker and I have his recommendation as well on my page.
- The blogs were generally well received (but nothing extra-ordinary).
- I exactly have space for one more "small" component in the "experience" section of my resume.
- The other option I have is working part of a start up for a month but I have nothing to show for that as I am not allowed to.
Short CV Background:
- 2 pages
- First page: only undergrad uni details and "experience (research internships)
- Second page: Projects, External collaborations, Awards, Skills.
- It's complete and organized with only that small portion of space remaining.
- Will it help showcase any part of my expertise? (Communication, writing, English in general)
- Is it relevant to the Admission panel? (or would I be wasting their time by adding this?)
I don't plan on mentioning it anywhere else like SOP, LOR, SOH (Personal History statement).
