Filling out the application form [#permalink] New post 07 Nov 2004, 08:23
Most schools have sections in their application that ask for information about employment history. Some schools also specify that applicants can use additional sheets to complete this information. I have observed that the space provided to describe the company description and job responsibilities is quite limited.

(1) Should I create seperate resume type of one page sheet (if resume is not required as part of the application) and ask the admission committe to refer to that sheet for the information they asked in the aplication form

(2) If the above option is workable, in how many words should I tried to convey this information for one employer? I have two employers both in totally different industries.

Thanks as always for your insight.

Most schools will ask you for a one-page resume--for those that don't, try to keep the work history brief & straightforward. You don't want to give them too much material to wade through (they have enough to read as it is!), so stick as close to resume format as possible!

If you're really not sure what they're looking for, a quick phone call to the admissions office would be a very good idea--the people there should be glad to answer your questions about their specific requirements.

Best of luck with the process,
Sonia
