What is a better format for your resume in your application: functional or chronological? Any comments or suggestions?

christopher,
i believe chronological is more appropriate for business school applications.
in fact, the expanded resume required at u of chicago almost forces your info to be laid out chronologically.
also, during my interviews at kellogg and GSB i was asked to walk the interviewer through my resume - they wanted to start w/ my education and move through my career path, etc. this would have been quite difficult if i had used a functional resume.
you're not looking for a job here ... you want to emphasize a strong career, accomplishments, and advancement.

just my two cents ....
hope you're doing well. :wink:

Thanks. Since you are already in your school of choice, know you the process very well. I will most likely call to you for more advice if that is OK with you? Thanks again Care.

BTW, I am doing OK. Thanks for asking :wink:

I agree that the chrono format probably does a better job of showing career progression.

If you want to present your resume in chrono order, please make sure its in reverse chrono order.....nobody is interested in what you did 10 years back!!!!

start with your present employer and so on...
