Should one include any short-term internship in resume?

This summer, two elite boutique firms and one BB firm have offered someone I know three different internships. After summer is over, should this person include all three-summer internships in their resume even though two of the three internships are for very short time frame? First internships is for one week at an elite boutique firm in London, second internships is for nine weeks for a Bulge Bracket firm in London and the last internship is for two weeks IBD with another elite boutique firm in London.

Why don't you let the person who got the internship offer worry about whether to put it on his resume or not.

Sorry, I mean no harm to anyone. Moreover, I intend not to put anyone down. I am just curious as space is limited in one page resume, and I will be doing these internships. So trying to think about it. Who is London? Thanks.

Brown, your post reeks of insecurity and I doubt the guys intention was to brag about having 3 internships (congrats to him)

Include them in your resume as you would any other internship and be sure to include the dates of each to avoid confusion...the 1 week internship will look ridiculous X Bank June 1 - June 5

If you're lucky, maybe the week spanned 2 months, like "June - July 2008" -- I have a two-weeker on my resume like that.

You might want to try putting a little bit about it in your cover letter and give some reason behind it. Here is a really good example of a cover letter.

This is pretty sad and is becoming quite a nuisance. This poster j1621 seemingly posts on every single thread to promote his website.

I could see if it was warranted and actually tried to provide objective advice. This is not the case, no matter the topic/discussion, j1621 posts his nonsense.

The guy is a complete spammer with no real intention of providing advice or helping anyone.

Please get this guy off of WSO...
