I'm in my schools co-op program. An instructor said I should include the "awesome courses I have taken and what I did in them". Is this recommend? A potential problem could be that the reader wouldn't know the courses offered at the schools I have attended. In this situation I would have to write a course description for each and this would significantly increase the size of my cover letter or resume.
Also I can always send my transcript so I don't see the point of this. Would it be a better idea to mention some large projects I had done but take them out of school since it's not important?
I actually do have 4 or 5 other jobs I can mention on the resume/cover letter for the field I'm in. So I do have some work experience.
