One page resume [#permalink] New post 24 Dec 2004, 07:48
Hi,

Firstly, merry X'mas to all!!

I need to upload a one-page resume for my application. I'm finding it very hard to fit everything into one page. Will the following format do?

Work Experience
- Current
- Previous job
- Previous job

Education
- College
- Award

I reckon I can leave the other awards and achievements to another dedicated section in the application.

Your advice on the above format please. Thanks!

Yeah that's pretty much what you'll find on the standard US resume. I'd highly recommend that you take a look at how a couple of them are formatted before finishing your own.

Is it a must to have a one page resume even if the school doesn't specify any page limit?
My resume is 1.5 pages. Should I worry much about it?
I am applying to HBS and Kellogg

It's not a 100% you'll get dinged for sure if you don't type must. But it is a pretty strong rule to have a 1-pager. After all, these schools will demand that you creat a 1-pager once you get there, why would you submit more than that?
