So this summer, I had two independent and different internships. One was a full-time 9-5 paid "developer" internship. The other one was a remote internship at an academic institution. I somehow managed to pull it off and finished my projects at both the places (by working weekends, at night etc). My supervisors at both the places knew of the other internship and were comfortable with it hence I did not have a hassle.
Now I face a problem of putting them up on my resume. I am slightly apprehensive about putting both of them on my resume,as in my view it would make it seem like the internships were amateur ones and not a professional ones(please do correct me if you think this is not true). It was suggested to me by a mentor that I strike off the remote one, as it will not count towards my professional work experience, but I wish to retain it as it was some really good work and moreover was "research" based(in a field important to me and my career goals).
So my questions are:
- Will showing two overlapping internships on my resume cause any problems? Will it be taken suspiciously as being forged/not authentic? (Forged internships on resumes are a chronic problem in my country)
- Is there a way I can prevent such a confusion/suspicion? How should I explain this to any potential employers who have their doubts regarding the same?
PS. If it matters, this is in the field of computer science and I am a college senior who will soon start looking for full time opportunities.
