    PHD ECON - Not so relevant work experience

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hello everyone!

    Prospective applicant for fall here (Economics)! I was seeking advice regarding my internship experience: I have interned for three months in investment banking (M&A) and a summer at a well-known International Organization.

    Neither experience is much research-oriented and I have been (ill?)advised to hide them both from my CV - so that my path doesn't appear inconsistent/I don't give negative signals regarding my focus.

    What do you think? Any advice on how to best present these experiences in CV/SOP?

    Many thanks

    Leave them on your cv. They're basically irrelevant.

    Internships aren't much either way. Listen to Starts. If you are interested in finance research the internship could be useful there.
