Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
How detailed and any good examples to look at? Any good web sites?
I think all schools ask for a detailed resume. This looks like the first step.
How many pages long?
How many jobs to go back to?
What do you guys think?
i think it should be 1 page long, 2 - maybe 3 jobs (more if they are more significant than the recent ones)... I would advise you to check resume books online and check the montauk book - that has some examples.
i have links to a couple of resume books, in case you want to view them just PM me please...
should UG activities and community positions go on your resume or is there a place on the app for these?
and how appropriate is it to add interests/hobbies? this seems silly to me, i've never seen resumes include this until i looked at examples for b-school. i have a lot of leadership that i'd prefer to put in over my interests
i'm having trouble whittling down my resume. it's just a bit over a page, but extremely dense; i think it is just too heavy on text. could anyone suggest ways to get it down or if any students/resume experts want to critique, i'll be happy to send you an e-mail.
here are areas i think would save space, please provide your thoughts: - summary of responsibilities before action/result oriented bullet points. i saw that resumes should have a brief summary of your role before going into the specific highlights, do you think this is necessary? - a couple of lines about UG internship experience. being that i interned with a F50 all four years of UG, this is almost an year worth of wok exp and i think it adds to my resume, i also have an internship after graduating as i didn't start FT work until 9 months after graduating. i think that's too much time to leave unaccounted so i included the internship, the other half of that time was spent traveling. should i just leave this off and explain in the alt essay? - tons of leadership and community involvement, how far back should i go? these are key roles that tell a lot about me and my level of commitment to community involvement. should i save UG extracurriculars for the application versus being on the resume? - personal interests - is this even necessary? i see it a lot on resume samples for b-school and they say it helps provide for conversation during interviews.
I think the biggest difference between b-school resume and job resume are the removal of heavy terms of art. For example, I don't need to list every trading platform, data base program etc I've used. They've never heard of that stuff nor do they care. Same thing goes for patents as that question was asked to representatives from Michigan, Cornell, NYU, and Duke at an event I was at. They pretty much said you're crazy to submit a resume over 1 page. I believe the NYU rep said they make you parse down to one page within your first 2 weeks of school so you might as well do it when you apply.
