If I submit a resume for the department scholarships, is it okay to write the work experience of like Ocean city where I worked illegally? Are they gonna question my status or call international student office?

Why do you need to mention about Ocean city job for department scholarship? You may want to mention it only if you are applying for a fast food restaurant job.

but I have not done any legal jobs. I am also working off campus on cash right now. If I have no mention of jobs in resume then it will look bad.

How does it look bad if you don't mention about your job for scholarship application? Instead, it will negatively impact your elligibility to get the schoalrship particularly if it is need-based scholarship.

No dude. It won't look dull. The two facts of life are: (1) Don't do something illegal (2) If you cant follow step 1 then don't talk about what you did.

You are not allowed to work illegally in America. you know this fact. Why you boosting the the fire by fueiling it? paper is alwys legal than verbal. make your paper alwys legal by not mentioning your kartut. U know the answer.

write about your experience from Nepal related to ur job. you don't need to prove this. Even if you need...I know you can do that.

Bhikari, Since you're only applying for a departmental scholarship, it doesn't matter how long or impressive your work experience section in your resume looks. What they're trying to see is if there's anything in you that stands out among other people who are competing for the same scholarship. I suggest you put emphasis on your other involvements or achievements (e.g extracurricular activities, organizations or clubs that you were a member of, projects that you were involved in which relate to your area of study, GPA, any other recognition or awards etc.). You could also mention about your activities and achievements in Nepal, the scholarship or grant that college gave you when you came to the US (doesn't matter if its a very small amount) etc. More than the resume you should focus on writing a strong essay or a letter stating what makes you worthy of the scholarship, how it will help you and finally how you will be able to give back to the department/ college community if you do get the scholarship. I personally feel its not a good idea to include your illegal jobs in your resume. International students like us slog twice as much as people here but still don't get all the credit that we're worthy of. Thats a sad reality that we have to face. Anyway, you should also mention about how you had big dreams when you came here for your higher studies but financial constraints might limit you from achieving your goal. Also, tell them that the scholarship money will help you relieve mental stress that come from having to worry about how to pay for your college the next sem. and you could devote your time/ energy to work towards your goal. I hope this helps :). Good luck with your application.

Junkiri..thats the best answer... and bhikari why are u insisting on including your work experience in pizza, gas station, stores.. or blah blah... in ur resume which is supposed to be for scholarship? i dont understand....as said by people above- make the committee feel that u deserve it by showing that u r highly participative in school activities and stuffs like that... but goodluck....and let us know what happens...

Do not put your OC job experience..I have known a lot of guys who have got department jobs during their first semester in US...so you don't really need to show those unnecessary work experiences
