Resume Building For MBA Admission

Resume is a tool that is very important because it is through this that you present yourself to the examiner or the interviewer.

Your resume should focus on your development and your career journey so far.

The interviewer is not interested in your personal life. In brief, he/she just wants to know about your educational and career related information that will help him/her to decided whether you should be selected or not.

Resume building is most of the times ignored by students but it is an important milestone that you have to cross in your MBA admission journey.

The resume should explain why MBA is the next logical step in your career move. With believable reasoning, explain why MBA will help you move forward in your career ladder. Explain in brief, how MBA will equip you with necessary skills to help you enter the corporate world.

Here is what the resume should include:
  • Name, address and other contact details
  • Work experience in reverse chronological order (if applicable)
  • Educational qualification in reverse chronological order
  • Career Objective
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Achievement and awards (only relevant ones)
  • Skill set
Be honest while preparing your Resume. Most of your MBA admission interview questions will be based on your resume. Hence try and present the best. Do not be too boastful about your achievements at the same time. Also elaborate how your work experience has led you to seek admission into a B-school which you are applying to.

The admission officers are looking for diversity, uniqueness and success in a resume. This will help them measure the potential of a candidate. The officer will also look how you have tapped opportunities that came your way and how have did you tackle with the hurdles.

Remember that an impressive resume can just fetch you admission into your dream B-school.
