Sample Resumes For MBA Admission

"mba-admissions-application-resumes-image"Top 3 Pointers for building a world-standard Resume’ for B-school applications.

  1. The difference between a “Resume'” and a “CV”: A Resume’ is highly professional, concise and  accomplishment focused while the CV may carry other personal details such as “date of birth” and the like.
  2. A typical B-school resume is 1-page in length: The maximum is 2 – 3 pages (3 pages will actually be an overflow)
  3. Accomplishments and NOT  “responsibilities/JDs” matter: Business school applications almost always have separate sections where you can include details of your job title and the like. Unless, specifically asked for in your application, including detailed responsibilities may actually work against you.

    how do i make resume and CV for myself .i m a dentist

    • Greetings. Thanks for your post. We are presuming that you are applying for an MBA program? A CV and Resume are fundamentally different. Resume is more businesslike and has to be very very focused on specific numbers, people and technical/functional/specific skill or ability achievements. A global standard resume does not exceed 1 page. Even 2 pages is excess and is advised only for people with lots of business or very strong payload of achievements.

      CV on the other hand, may carry, personal details such as languages known, date of birth etc. IF it’s an MBA, rule of thumb is that you need a specific, global standard Resume’ and not a CV.

      We will contact you shortly.

  6. you are very welcome. Cheers!
