So. Two questions:
I need 1 more course to complete my Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science (Specialization in Software engineering). I finished 45/46 courses. The last course will be completed in Summer 2023. I also completed a Major in Urban Planning.
I don't want to wait until Summer 2023 to start working. I want to start asap.
Question 1: How do I show this on my resume?
On a side note: I started the Bachelor's of CS program in 2012. From 2012/13-2017 I worked on it and did coop as an IT assistant in 2013 for 4 months summer and coop web developer in 2016 for 8 months. I completed a Major in Urban Planning from 2018-2020. Then took a break for 2 years and worked a job unrelated to CS (helped my friend do labor work for his home cleaning business). Now I'm going back to complete my final course. I also worked as an IT helpdesk student at the university for 4 months in 2018.
My second question would be, which option is easiest for me:
Option 1: Don't mention my start date for Bachelors of Science in CS, just mention expected graduation. Don't put down my coop jobs in 2013 and 2016 (only put down the 2018 student job). Don't put down my non-CS related job. This way I would just be a Bachelor's of CS expected graduate student applying for work. Don't have to go through the hassle of explaining why it took so long to graduate.
Option 2: mention that the start date of the CS degree was 2012, put down all my coop experiences and my other job, and try to explain the entire thing.
Option 3: just say my CS degree was 2018-2022 (and urban planning degree was 2016-2018, and worked a student IT job in 2018).
How should I go about this to make it the most easy? Thanks in advance! (Also please remember to answer the first question that is, how to write it on my resume that I'm 45/46 courses complete and am actively looking for a job that starts soon, not waiting to complete my final course in summer 2023)
Third question added: how should I list my time at university (since I took breaks). Like this (it looks funny)?
