Questions to consider when developing an MBA resume

Questions to consider when developing an MBA resume

If you are starting the 2019-2020 MBA application process, then you are most likely preparing to take your GMATS and if you are an international student, the TOEFL exam. In addition, you probably are also starting to prepare your resume.
A resume, very often limited to one or two pages, summarizes your professional background, skills, and education. The fundamental principles of resume writing have not changed for generations; if you are getting ready for the application process or even your next career move, keep these rules in mind as you create and write your resume.

1. Cover the basics
The resume’s objective to represent your relevant skills and accomplishments. Therefore, every resume must include:
Relevant educational degrees and certifications
Relevant work or volunteer experiences
Contact information
Relevant skills and level of mastery (Fluent in Spanish; conversational French)

In addition, use an easy to read font and font size which is usually between 10-12 points. Complex or small font size will made your resume difficult to read.

2. Use as few words as possible
The Admission Officers will spend only a few minutes on your resume so make every word count. Avoid words like “a,” “an,” “the,” “such as” and “etc.”

3. Quantify your accomplishments wherever possible
Admissions Officers are looking for the impact you have made on the organization in your particular role. Numbers and data bring your experience to life, boost your credibility and adds detail to your resume.

4. Use action verbs
It is important to avoid passive verbs and business jargon or clichés such as “bottom line” or “move the needle.” Additionally, avoid tired words and phrases because poor word choice will undermine the strength and effectiveness of your resume. Instead, use powerful action verbs and avoid overusing the same verbs (such as “assisted,” “oversaw,” and “utilized.”) Using plain, clear language that explains how you’ve delivered value is much more effective.
TIP: Combine your action verbs with quantifiable results to demonstrate both what you did and the impact it had.
