I started doing part time undergraduate research under a professor last week. I have a general understanding of what I'm working on, but I do not have an explicitly-defined project (rather, week-to-week my work will be decided based on the previous week's progress and what work I can reasonably do).
Today is the start of my school's application process for co-op. I would like to put this position as ongoing employment experience on my resume, but I am not sure how much I should put on there.
I am hesitant to ask the professor I'm working with because I'm only a week in and I don't want to unintentionally make him think that I'm just doing this to pad my resume.
