I have plenty of experience in the work field, but I am unsure about which experiences of mine are more valuable than others. I'm nervous about including the irrelevant or wrong experiences. How does admissions evaluate work experience? What are they looking for? Are there specific types of work experience that will make a candidate more attractive?
- Kofi Kankam expert Preet - they look for professional, white collar experience, with a strong focus on career progression and advancement. Generally, the schools are looking for you to be in the top 10% of your peer group and want recommendation comments which attest to that - at least at the top-tier schools. Leadership roles that you have obtained which are outside of work are helpful too.
