How do we best communicate our working of two full-time jobs [#permalink]

Hello everyone,

I have a period of 10 months where I worked two full-time jobs (40 hours at an Equities Trading Firm, 40-50 hours at Apple as an International Sales Specialist) a couple years ago. Would this constitute as 20 months of Work Experience or just 10. Also, is there a better way to position this to maximize this period of time when I was working at two places.

Thank you, all.

Working two jobs during the same period does not double the months of experience. You just did more in 10 months than others did. 'Tis all. Put it on your resume with the overlapping time periods and adcoms will see it. It'll be in your application as well. If it applies to an essay question mention it there too.

I agree with this also. Think of the investment banker that works 100 hours a week for 1 year. Did he actually get 2.5 years of work experience? NO, he got 1 year of intense 100 hour a week work experience. Most everyone you will compete against will not be working the standard 40 hour work week you may be considering. But the fact that you worked two full time jobs at once shows dedication and ability. So it's a definite positive

Hey Cheetarah and GMATLA! Gosh, thanks for coming through again.

I appreciate the advice. It certainly makes sense. With my profile, I've been told I have no "margin of error," so just working on my positioning early and finding out how to best maximize each of my strengths. Thanks again =)

Yes, that is very smart to start early. If you are truly a borderline applicant you may consider having a essay review company, admissions consultant, or other trusted source help point you in the right direction. A well crafted application along with strong interview, resume, essays, GMAT etc can make all the difference. Good luck!
