Should I include an incomplete degree if I'm pursing further education
Should I leave the incomplete degree out of my resume or how should I include it in if I really haven't completed any of it?
I studied 2 different degrees from different fields at the same college. I have completed my first degree but don't intend on completing the second degree. I use to mention my second degree as being in progress as it prolonged the completion of my first degree. But now I have withdrawn from my second degree since I have graduated from the first one.
So if I exclude it, it will just look like I have taken a very long time to complete my first degree. I'm really embarrassed that I was enrolled in my second degree for 4 years and I only managed to successfully complete 2 subjects and my first degree took me 7 years to complete. I don't really want to explain that to employers that my second degree was really a failure.
I have started to study at postgraduate level, so the incomplete second degree is really obsolete since the postgraduate course is the same study area.ANSWER:
I'd leave out the second degree, and if anyone asks, I'd just say you could only go to school part time for the original degree, which is why it took so long. It's the truth, more or less, and is perfectly believable and common. Good luck!
