The Admissions Application Resume

- Saturday, January 16, 2010

Many people mistakenly believe that the resume is merely a “fill-in-the-blanks” document, but it is in fact much more complicated. Your resume must be specifically tailored to highlight your unique strengths and experiences. As the document must also be concise, you should ensure that the points about each position you have held or each achievement you describe are relevant and compelling.

Don’t be repetitive. Even if you have held two similar positions at different companies, describe your tasks and responsibilities at each company in a unique manner. You should demonstrate how your move to the more recent company demonstrated professional growth.

Emphasize your contributions and achievements. Admissions officers are not simply looking for a laundry list of your duties.  Instead, describe how your expertise and diligence directly contributed to the improvement of the company or organization.

Ensure cohesion. Your resume should make logical sense to all readers. In other words, the order in which you present your academic background, professional experiences, and extracurricular involvements should flow naturally and appear well integrated.
