Q on Resume [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2004, 00:50
Is there any fixed format for Resume as far as following parameters are concerned:
Font,
Font size,
pdf file or MS word document,
Order of Sections [Skill then professional ex then education blah blah].

Can anybody through some light on the above parameters both for professional and non-professional resume?

I thought I answered this one. Must have gotten lost in the mail...

Regarding PDF or DOC, I don't know the answer, especially if you are applying online. Ask the schools.
Font: Use a good readable font, especially for the text. Keep it legible, no less than 10 point, preferably 11.
Order: Use the order that presents you best to b-schools. For most MBAs, that implies putting Experience before Education.

For more information on resumes and applications, please see:

Good luck!
