How to put this on CV? Is it even worth it...

Basically this is the thing:

I have 2 BB FO internships so far, and will start doing some part-time internship (9-10 months, only 10h/week to support paying my studies) at a good company (Fidelity, Wellington, PIMCO) in a random back office department (administration-, marketing-, sales-support, assisting senior guys covering countries etc.).

Now, I am doing this because I needed the money, so I figured out that working at a good-brand company and being around industry professionals and assisting them/having the chance to network with them could be beneficial. I am pretty sure that I can use this to my advantage even though its bs job.

It is a small, regional office and I am the only intern. They really didn't have the need for interns and I guess they only considered me because of nice cover letter and solid CV => there was no chance to get some "investments" department internship, I will just be doing any work that needs to be done.

1) Is this even worth putting on my CV - would you do it?

I could probably present it as a more relevant, better learing experience internship on my resume but still it is back office/support. I will definitely do some country research, prepare presentation materials, update stuff etc.

I could put some minor BS accounting/research work instead or some university club thing (also crap).

2) If so, where to put it? Before my BB IBD because it is "may2013 - present" ongoing experience or somewhere below because it is not really relevant?

3) Is part-time/flexible something that needs to be mentioned on a resume?

I would appreciate answer on any of the questions and any advice that you have.

Many thanks!

P.S. (not sure if it matters ) I am focused on getting IBD FT offer at BB/elite bouique after my undergrad studies and maybe moving to a HF or sth after several years (I am genuinely interested in investing), but I am still learning and will just see where life takes me. No super-strong focus on anything yet.

Put it under the two BB FO internships on your resume. Use 1-2 lines for it (brief description) because you have it there purely for the name and also for a bit of variety. The BB internships will still be the main focus but the name of the BO internship can't hurt.

thank you for your comment

i thought something among those lines as well, but got confused because of this thread
//www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/ordering-of-work-ex...

some people say that the ongoing experience should be on the top

btw, my internship is not necessarily BO, it is just very random, ill do anything that needs to be done
it might turn out to be pretty good experience, since i am surrounded by senior level people constantly

I would put it on your resume as professional experience. I would follow the format you have on your resume for where to put it. I would be upfront about this job being part-time in my cover letter, but if you're only dropping off a resume I would say "part-time" somewhere in the brief description on the resume.

thanks for your comment

so you basically mean that I should put it as my most recent work experience, in front of everything else?
I am using m&i resume format and I could call my position something like "part-time intern in.."

formally, it is an internship, although, a long term one
