sample b-school resume? [#permalink] New post 12 Dec 2006, 19:09
hey guys,

i'm currently editing my job search resume into a b school application resume. I know it's quite different. First and foremost, I should NOT have an objective listed. Also I saw this link and am wondering if this is the correct way to structure a resume.

are there any samples i can look at?

That seems fine.

In general I'd suggest

Work experience
Education
Extracurriculars

If one includes all this AND internships is the resume still expected to fit one page only?
I find it pretty hard to fit everything in one page.
Also when the specific projects in the work ex are described, what sort of depth is required.

I did not include any internships during undergrads. just included my work experience post college.

thanks guys..im about 80% done with my resume and am doing some tweaks. I did not add my internship because there is no way for me to fit this info into 1 page. i've listed the following:

Work Exp
- 2 diff companies with a lil summary of the job description. then after that bullet pts with key accomplishments

Community service
- 2 diff volunteer groups listed

education
- with pres. of fraternity listed

i'm debating if i switch education and comm service. not sure which one should be listed before the other

Resume length [#permalink] New post 13 Dec 2006, 17:33
Just my 2 cents: edit! edit! edit! and then edit some more. My resume went from 3 initial pages (I'll call it my "brainstorming resume) to 1 page by:

1st) Editing out (or merging from two or three into one) several bullets.
2nd) Trimming parts of sentences / bullets.
3rd) Making the name / address / phone section only 1 line long in the header.
4th) Asking the question "is it absolutely necessary" to each word I had left by then.
5th) Changing Font to Arial Narrow (but keeping the 10 pt size as it was required) and making sure I had used no more than the minimum required margins.

I took ages to get it done. In particular the last 10 - 20% of editing were the toughest.

Hope it helps.
