How should an MBA Resume be different than a professional job interview Resume?
How important is the 1pg vs 2 pg Resume? I have seen mixed reviews on this based on industry.
- Kofi Kankam expert An MBA resume should be more focused on your outside of work activities and explain your tasks to a non-insider. So stay away from acronyms (especially tech people). And keep it one page if you have less than 10 years of work experience. You're better off short having left a little bit out with every single line being amazing, than being longer and having material which is not fantastic being on there.
- MBAaquarius This is very useful feedback. I am quite surprised to hear it is better to have your CV on 1 page. That's tough to sell yourself with. Mine is about 3 pages long so I guess I have a lot of work to do.
- Kofi Kankam expert Yes, Efua. You should cut it unless you are a PhD and/or a bit older.
- Linda El Awar expert This is a great question, and @Kofi Kankam is spot on as usual! I have found one of the easiest ways to edit a resume is to see which of your line items describes the results of your work. What happened because of what you did? If you don't have results to share, delete those lines!
