you put it only AFTER admission, so the resumes you have seen may have been 2nd years or those who have enrolled.


Just to clarify; adding "XYZ University, MBA (Prospective 2011)" under education--where "XYZ is name of MBA program/School you're applying--is not advisable? The keyword here being "Prospective"...as in, "hopeful" candidate (not yet candidate). My only reasoning is that having the schools name printed there, even if only to say "Prospective" and not "Candidate" would be viewed positively by admissions.

How wrong is my thinking on this?

What they forgot to tell you was that on MBA Focus there is a handling fee. I registered and selected 5 free resume books and then went to check out only to find a $100 handling fee. So if you are not prepared to pay a handling fee, don't waste your time.

Hello everyone,

I'm looking at my one-page resume with Times New Roman 10 and I'm wondering if the font is too small. I used Arial 10 before and it was fine because Arial is bigger than TNR for a given font size.

Are there any resume experts who can tell me what's the bottom limit for font size for TNR or Arial or any other font? :?

Thanks!

becarev,
You'll want to use Arial or Time New Roman with a 12 font. Most companies want that format. You can also use a resume service if you need help with what font to use and for helping you make the most of your resume. Good luck!

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?

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
