So does anyone know if the adcoms prefer to see Experience first, then Education on the resume, or vice versa? The Clear Admit resume guide says to list your education first, and I believe the resumes in the Wharton resume book put education first also. However, I've heard from several MBAs that in the admissions process, you should put experience at the top of your resume and education second. Thoughts?

Well, it's flexible. But the rule of thumb is put the most important stuff FIRST (and most important stuff to the lest). So if you are a regular MBA applicant with experience, that's your work, if you are a new graduate applying to HBS 2+2, then it's your education.

The reason education is first for current students is that is what they are currently doing. It is the most relevant info for the jobs they are applying for. Since you are applying to school and are currently working, always lead with your current or most recent job. If you are a current student in pursuing another grad degree then you can lead with your education profile.

Where should I put promotions and awards? Should I make a separate section? Currently I just have awards under each accomplishment I've achieved at my job. Thanks in advance!

I think you should create a separate section for listing awards. You can explain where you achieved these awards. This section can catch the attention of hiring manager

Nice tips given by you.Cover letter is just like the heart of your brand resume.Without a good cover letter your resume is incomplete.So,to get a job or applying for any admission,cover letter should be effective.

If you feel that any how,you have to add your award listing and it will make a difference then you can add it in your skills section.But if you have a long list of achievements then you can use a separate section to add your achievements and awards.Hope you have found your answer.

There is plenty of good info here. My two cents would be to check out an online creator site like resume4free (dot) com. It will format and set up your info automatically. It's worth a try. :-D
