Wharton Application Question [#permalink] New post 28 Dec 2010, 14:19

As part of the employment section in the application to Wharton, we are asked to include our job duties per employer in a specific field. Also, we are asked to upload our resume. I am in consulting and included the most notable client projects / company accomplishments in my resume.

What type of information should I submit in the job duties field? Should it be more around my corporate responsibilities (e.g. Account Management, Relationship Management, Administration, etc)?

Thank you in advance for your insights!

Hi jocampo,

Don't think of the two docs as interconnected. When an admissions officer reviews a file, he or she starts with a resume, but they take a snapshot, they don't memorize it. So they like to have you unpack it or restate it in their own short answer format. Don't feel limited by what you have in your resume. If you get to expand or elaborate, great. If not - if it's almost verbatim what you have on your resume? - no big deal.

The bigger question, it goes without saying, is the essays. That is where you have to be bulletproof. Make sure your career goals essay expands from the required into Optional 1. Make sure you don't just cut and paste an HBS mistake essay into the Wharton option; you have to explain how the incident informed your definition of failure. Wharton is minefield, make sure you navigate it carefully.

Good luck!
