I've seen several books with resumes, some of them posted in this forum, and I've noticed that some people write only the year in which each experience occurred, while others write month + year (which is more exact). What do you recommend? Is there any convention about this in the US? It's obvious that writing only the year could help those who have a hole difficult to justify in their working life. But how is this considered by adcoms?

Thanks!

business schools typically are going to want resumes to hit month and year, given that application websites note the month and year of your employment.

So if someone has a gap in employment, he or she is going to have to explain it when this is listed in terms of month and year. Considering that there were many layoffs over the last few years, it is not necessarily a black mark on folks who were laid off from a job. It's probably what they did in between full time jobs that will show if a layoff becomes a black mark or not.
