How long do you keep internships on your resume? I'm applying for senior CW roles and am not sure if they're hurting or helping.

Depends on how it helps round out your story. Have had a lot of roles and I keep mine on there because of where it was and also to help add dimension to my experience. Can never hurt, unless you’re not proud of it and want your pro experience to shine more.

If it’s at an amazing agency, maybe. But you probably have enough to talk about with two jobs

You shouldn’t really have anything from school after your first job- post-grad internships are a scam but becoming more common, keep that I suppose

What about if you interned at the company you're at now (interned for 1.5 years) and now been full-time for 2 years??

Retire them once you get at least a three solid title entries. I achieved this at the 5 year mark, but this may be different if you've freelanced or dabbled in contract work. For example, if you have 4 job entries on your resume, and 2 of those are internships... don't drop the internships until you secure your 5th job title. Just my honest opinion.

SD1 gets it. But don't forget to carry the 1 and factor in wind resistance.
