I am currently writing a resume for my very first college job, and I have a grammatical question about one of my sentences. Please help me, if you can. Here is the sentence:
"I can converse well with others, even in times (that/which) require the utmost patience and civility."
If you could help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
As to the grammar, either THAT or WHICH is grammatically correct and both are well suited to a resume.
But I have to say it's a pretty sad state of affairs, Ivory, that you might be "marked down" because there are a lot of pedants in the college scene who believe in the rule/prescription that Engineer described. The rule/prescription is, as I mentioned, completely bogus, but that won't help you if you have some ignorant SOB making a decision on your position.
You could, of course, take the academic approach, seeing as how it's a college job, and not fold under the pressure.
