Hello everyone,

I am working on my application to apply to a program this fall. Being that I am transitioning from the military, I am looking for some advice on my resume. The format of this resume is the template the school recommends to use. My biggest questions are, do I have enough supporting information or too much? Additionally, I feel like my profile section needs some work but I am stuck on what to do with it. Finally, are there any areas where I may not have fully translated my military experience into language that civilians understand? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! The site would not allow me to add an attachment so the resume is located below and obviously the formatting is not correct.

Thanks for the help!

Hi MALLEKB,

Thank you for your post, and for sharing your profile. You can reference this article for assistance on your resume https://siaadmissions.com/sia-blog/mba-resume.
The article might answer some of your questions as well. What school(s) are you applying to? As to your profile, it is difficult to ascertain which direction you should take without additional information. I recommend you reach out (contact details in signature) so we can schedule a call (free consultation).

Good luck!
