Good morning! I’m avoiding writing a very complicated press release by writing the bio that will be going up on my org’s website at some point soon-ish. This is my first job in my field, and it will be a very sad bio if I don’t kick things up a bit, but I’m concerned about being misleading.
I got a master’s working under one supervisor, and then did about a year and a half in a PhD program at the same school before deciding that academia was not my destiny. However, during my time in the PhD program I worked with a different supervisor - an academic rock star. If I said “Bel received her graduate degree from So-and-So University, where she was supervised by Academic Rock Star” is that terrible? I did get a degree from the school and I did work with that person. I just didn’t get the degree for the work I did with him. Alternatively, would “Bel attended So-and-So University, where she was supervised by Academic Rock Star” be better?
Also, I do have a lot of intern and volunteer experience that’s pretty cool. If I said “Bel also worked with A, B, and C” instead of “Bel interned with A, B, and C” would that be very misleading?
