Your resume is a critical document, whether you’re applying for grad school or the job that marks the next step in your career. Virtually all graduate school applicants already have a resume. We simply help them to fine-tune it to achieve the desired result: getting into the school of their dreams.
Your resume is more than just a list of work and education experience. It’s a powerful tool that showcases your accomplishments while transmitting your personality. It also needs to look sharp, with spelling, syntax and abbreviations that are 100% correct. No matter who you are, your Resume should not exceed 2 pages in length. As you accumulate more experience, you will have to cut some detail associated with each position.
There are several things that distinguish a great Resume from a mediocre Resume: the introductory ‘sell’ at the beginning, well-planned layout, and knowing what to highlight. This last point is important, and many people don’t know which of the experiences they have had are of true value to a university admissions committee or to an employer.
