Resume Templates [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2008, 20:54
Does anyone have any solid resume templates that they may be able to share? I'm planning on re-formatting my resume prior to the application process.

Preferably something that looks like it came straight out of the Wharton or Tuck resume book :)

Numerous people have suggested the Veritas and/or Stacy Blackman resume templates. Maybe somebody has one floating around somewhere???? Do they even exist :o

I also saw a resume template on Vault.com suggested for "consulting" wannabes.

Some schools require specific formats...check last years applications to see how they want them.

What do you mean specific formats? Do you mean "doc vs pdf" or do you mean specifically tailored content and ordering for each school???? Boy the latter would SUCK!

OT: Do you know the difference between a CV and a Resume?

I was told a CV is for academic applications, and Resume for Professional applications.

CV's are used in academia and tend to be much more detailed than a professional resume... I've never had to write a CV myself

Hi,
My first thought is what separates the two is thoroughness and detail. The academic CV's that I have read have both a much higher level of detail (as compared to a resume) and, especially for folks with some mileage, no artificial length limits. However, I think perhaps what constitutes a "CV" (and who asks for it) varies with geography as well as field. I believe the distinction you make above is certainly correct in the US, e.g., my brother (Associate Professor) has a CV but, for any field other than academics, this ponderous document would certainly garner the ire of the HR department. However, all the European adcoms / marketing people I met with asked for my "CV" prior our meeting. I certainly assumed that they were not looking for a 10 page solioquy about the minutiae of my academic and workaday achievements. I had no direct feedback about its length or level of detail but the document I provided seemed to satisfy the purpose for which it was composed.

I seem to remember that you noted at one point that you thought US resumes were too brief?

Help!

I think I did a hybrid between Tuck and Chicago's templates. Just downloaded some resumes I found from their resume book and edited the template myself.

I didn't want my resume to look exactly like any specific school's template, since I was applying to multiple schools and that may send the wrong message.

If anyone needs the template, let me know and I can email it to them.

No some schools require different things. Chicago has a sample and instructions as part of their application. They want things like salary info and people you supervisor on there if I remember correctly.

You can find resume books online for some schools and clubs so those will give you an idea of how schools like them to look.

Someone posted a priceless document on here a while back. It was over 100 (maybe over 200) resumes from Wharton MBA students. What was interesting was that each and every single one was in the absolutely exact format / font / style as the rest of them! I don't have the doc myself, unfortunately, but I know the link or the name of it is on this site somewhere.

Pretty funny - Thomas Caleel (Wharton's director of admission) has his resume in that book :)

I don't have one for Chicago.

This is Tuck's Private Equity Club resume book:

Some of those resumes are pretty gnarly. Puts a good dose of reality into this whole process for me! Awesome post.
