DS-160 Form Question

I am currently in the process of completing my DS-160 form online and I have a question.

I graduated in July 2012 and therefore when I applied to Camp America I entered my last known occupation which was undergraduate student.

In the mean time I have not been employed in any permanent roles, however I was employed on a 5 week temporary contract over the festive period with a UK retailer as it fit in perfectly with my travel plans.

I am now confused as to how to proceed with my DS-160 application. Since my employment was temporary should I write my last known occupation as student like on my Camp America application and just ignore the temporary work that I undertook? Or should I acknowledge my temporary job and put that as my occupation on my DS 160 form?

Thanks very much,

This is the online Visa application isn't it?
It might be worth phoning CA and asking their opinion, also; make sure you've checked the guidelines CA give us, I remember there's something on it that say's 'don't write this... ' but I can't remember what it was :S

Sorry if this isn't much use >.<

Thanks for the reply :)

Do you know if there is a direct line for visa issues or do I just call the London office?

Just call the London office and ask for someone from Visas, has got me through to someone helpful every time I've called.
