Resume Application .. advise needed. [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2013, 17:11
Hello everyone.

I am currently working on applications for several MBA programs.

I have been in touch with some people that offer their services as consultans.
I am a bit worried about my resume, I am not sure how my academic, work, and international experiences. Could reflect the following.

1- Show that I am carrer focus
2. Show that I am a leader. or at least the qualities needed to become a leader and the dedication to develop those abilities.

I was hoping that some member of the club could give his personal opinion or share his or her experience with this kind of services.

Thanks in advance

Well you need to do this by a) highlighting the moment achievements and responsibilities in your career that are linked to leadership b) building a story within your resume which all leads to one conclusion - that of your specific goal.

If you are interested, you are always welcome to submit your resume and we can help you out: http://admissionado.com/mba/services-pr ... e-editing/

Hey David,

Jon is spot on - the resume really is the introduction to your application. It's there to serve as the hook and communicate some key themes quickly and with impact. If you're interested, I recently wrote a post about the resume and its role which you can find here.

If you'd like to learn more about our resume review services, I'd like to invite you to click here.

Cheers,

Bhavik

Hello davidlf,

I am sure you would have developed a fairly good idea of how to compose your resume after going through the advice and links posted by Jon and Bhavik. However, here are a few basic points that you may find useful:
1. Use powerful action verbs to begin bullet points when you are listing your responsibilities in the work experience section. The idea is to convey leadership, active contribution, and impact.
2. If you have been promoted within the organisation, please ensure your job description (under each designation) shows growth/progress in terms of incremental responsibilities and scope of work.
3. Have an Awards & Achievements section in the resume.
4. Quantify your responsibilities and achievements as far as possible. If you do not have the exact figures for everything, even approximate values would do. This will help the ad com to understand the magnitude of your work and the results achieved.
5. If you have been the first or the only one to have done/achieved something (academic, professional, extracurricular), highlight this.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
