I am a senior studying computer science, but I am going to a career fair looking for an internship, not a full time job, since I am planning to pursue a master's degree in the computer science next year. Where do I put this planned master's degree in my resume to let employers know why I am looking for an internship and not a full-time job?

    If you have not started it, it shouldn't be on your resume, because in 6 months your plans might change. If you have started it, while your plans can change, at least you have made progress. If you are looking for a internship apply to those jobs, don't apply, to full time jobs.

Preferably the cover letter, or the "Objectives" section of your resume. Be sure to explain that you are looking for an internship and not a full time job.

At a college career fair, most of the recruiters/companies will likely be very understanding of your situation, so when you meet face-to-face at the career fair, be sure to explain this as you hand them your resume.

  • +1 for cover letters - resumes are for listing what you have done, cover letters are where you put your intentions/objectives

    You have tripped my Objectives sensor. Do not include such a section on your resume.

  • In general I agree with not including an objectives. In this case though, the objective is non-obvious (most graduates will be looking for full time jobs), and I can't remember EVER handing a cover letter out at a campus job fair. Sep 28, 2015 at 18:16
