Steps in MBA Resume Writing

Spend some time thinking about your accomplishments

Make a list of key accomplishments from school, work, extracurricular activities, volunteer projects, hobbies, travel, and other major life experiences. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are you most proud of? What characteristics did your employers most value in your performance?
  • What projects best exhibited leadership, teamwork, management, and initiative?
  • Were you promoted early? Were you ever the youngest to achieve something? Were you ever elected/selected to serve in a leadership position or on a committee?
  • Have you ever saved your employer money? How?
