Tips for Career section of the online applications? [#permalink] New post 18 Oct 2013, 20:08
Does anyone have tips on filling out the Career/work experience section of application? I'm specifically talking about fields for describing primary job responsibilities.

Bullet form is acceptable, yes? If there is a 250 word limit, are they expecting I use all 250 words? I don't want to bore adcoms with too much detail.

I wasn't able to find this question readily in the forum. Hopefully this question helps others out as well.
Thanks

Bullet form is acceptable, even recommended. And you should be using every single word of every single section in every application. Each word space is an opportunity to boost your profile, so why not take it? (For example, my recommendation here would be to actually put in all your primary ACHIEVEMENTS (which by nature, include your responsibilities, but sound more impressive) ).

Hope this helps!

Yes, bullet form is acceptable. Also follow the same rules you would to make your resume:
  • Using action words
  • Brevity
  • Clarity
  • Quanitfying wherever applicable
