Why is it that Sept. to June is one year of school or one year of a TV sitcom on the air, but is nine months on an employee’s résumé?

If you attend a high school for 9th grade, it’s one year.  If a TV sitcom is cancelled after one season, it’s one year.  But if your résumé says you worked somewhere from September to June, it’s nine months.

    Don't confuse "school year" or "season" (for TV, etc.) with an actual calendar year. You should know that, certainly by the time you're in 9th grade. 

  • Most employees work year round, not just during those months.

    Some jobs don't give you 3 months vacation.

    Because working is a year-round thing.  If you work for five years, you work for 60 months, more or less, not 45.  School is only part of the year, about 9 1/2 months, and even if you go for multiple years, you usually don't go during the summer between the school years.  But if you have a job for many years, you do go to work during the summers.

    A TV sitcom is shown on TV during the summer, but it's usually just reruns; new episodes mostly air September to June.

    Do you get three months off work in summer for vacation?     No.   You work year 'round.   So a year of work is 12 months.

    You must go back to Middle School and repeat the 8th grade again so you will learn how to calculate the answer for your question.

    Because employers don't think in terms of tv seasons or school schedules. They work in calendar or fiscal years.
