In this “read out loud” we focus on a summary of an article by Stacy Blackman who advises candidates on how to prepare their résumé in order to make a favorable impression before they even get to the admissions’ interview.
By definition, each résumé is unique, just like every person’s experience. But when applying to a business school you have to customize your CV to each school to which you are applying to ensure it will be noticed and well regarded. Breaking the ice with the admissions’ team is not always easy but throwing in your hobbies and extracurricular interests definitely helps a great deal. Here are some tips Stacy shares with us:
- Avoid bullet points
- Using jargon is unnecessary
- Don’t repeat the information in your application documents
- Highlight skills that you have forged
Good luck in your application and check out the great free tools PrepAdviser offers to help you prepare for admission.
