Before You Start
For example, if you are applying for Mechanical Engineering Master’s programme at McGill University, you might want to mention the summer internship you did at the Mercedes in your Curriculum Vitae.
A golden rule of any Master’s CV is to focus mainly on your achievements in academics over the professional ones. Professional experiences are also important, but throw more light on your academic ones.
