resume advice - July 14th 2010, 09:24 PM

I did an internship last year that didn't turn out the way I planned. I was originally going to do it for 6 credits, but things with school got messed up and I could only get 3 credits for it. The internship was screwed up from the beginning as well, so I didn't get the position I wanted and I was driving over 2 hours in rush hour traffic to sit around all day and make copies and not learn anything. So I asked my supervisor at the agency if I could end my internship early after I had completed the hours for the 3 credits, because I couldn't afford the gas and stress of driving 2 hours if I wasn't getting any real education from it. She said that was fine and wouldn't hold it against me, but it turns out she gave me a negative review in my final evaluation and said that if I was really dedicated to the line of work and the agency I would have stayed even if I wasn't getting credit or having an amazing experience.

So I don't know if I should put this internship on my resume. It was a really prestigious agency that's really hard to get accepted as an intern into, but I'm afraid if anyone calls her up she will only have bad things to say about me. On the other hand, I don't want to leave it off because the jobs I'm looking into involve a very extensive background check and sometimes even polygraphs, so they're going to find out I did it anyway and I think it might look worse if I leave off such a "prestigious" experience. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Aš tave myliu, Nanny. I'm carrying your love with me.
