Hello there!

My name is Fabio and I am working on my resumee and I am not sure whether I should say I "worked in" or "worked on" in the following phrase.

Another challenge was my intern work in an international project of several multinational companies ...
or should it be
Another challenge was my intern work on an international project of several multinational companies ...

Do I assume correclty that by saying "worked in" means I worked on parts of the project and that by saying "worked on" means that I worked on the totality of the project? Which one is right?

Best regards,
Fabio

PS - please do only answer if you are sure!

'In' and 'on' don't have the distinct differentiation you are suggesting here, Fabio, but 'on' is the standard choice: 'to work on a project/committee/report.'

Fabio,

You work "on" a project, so the correct phrase would be the second one.

Usually you work "in" a collective, e.g. I worked IN a team/group/company (although this can often be substituted with "for").

Work "on" is used for the actual work done, e.g. I will work ON my grammar, I worked ON a project

One final point is in your phrase, I wouldn't use "of"

Depending on the meaning you wish to convey I would either use

"Another challenge was my intern work on an international project for several multinational companies ... "

"Another challenge was my intern work on an international project about several multinational companies ... "

or

"Another challenge was my intern work on an international project involving several multinational companies ..."
