I'm currently a student attending an American top 50 university and I work at a mid-large sized financial consulting firm. The firm bills me out to clients at $75 an hour and I've done hundreds of hours of billable work over the year I've worked there.
Since I'm applying to entry level jobs out of college I have been including my billing rate on my resume, the exact line is:
•Performed hundreds of hours of billable work for a variety of clients including regulatory agencies, investment funds, and private individuals at a billing rate of $75/hour.
I recently received criticism about that and was told that I should take it off my Resume. Is this some type of a faux pas? I feel that showing I have already been valued at such a high billing rate (for my experience) is a positive and demonstrates that I can do billable work. Should I remove this line from my Resume?
