Apps and Resumes - Family Business on Work Experience?

<p>I work on the family farm during the summer and was wondering if, on applications or resumes, it's okay to put that on there or not? Not having it on there makes it look like I don't work at all, but I don't know if you're supposed to put that on there or not.</p>

<p>You should include it - you are helping your family as well as working. I am a parent now, but when I applied to college I wrote about working at my family's small business on my application. I think colleges like to see a person who does things (work or otherwise) with their familly, and also, it counts as work experience whether it is for your family or someone else.</p>

<p>Yes, include it. It can be an impressive EC. Do also include info about what exactly you do.</p>
