Is there any fixed format for Resume as far as following parameters are concerned:
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.
