MBA Resume Writing

By | March 23, 2009

An MBA resume shows that you are extra ordinary. You have special competencies and skills which are above the standard. Ordinary resumes target standard audience while MBA resumes mostly target big companies. 

Achieving an MBA is a great step. You do not want to bury your best achievement under the covers. Hidden beauty is not beauty, so announce to all employers that you are the best candidate for the job you aspire for.

When you are writing an MBA resume indicate where you went to school. Employers recognize education from reputable business schools.

The higher you go in a certain field the more specialized you become. What did you specialize in? State whether it is strategic planning, management, finance, e-commerce, etc. It will do you a lot of good.

In addition, state the MBA course units which are related to the job you are eying. Do not indicate course units which are irrelevant to the job. You might appear like you are more fit in another position other than the one you are applying for.

If you are applying for a job in the finance department, leave the e-commerce details out. You are as good as your words describe you.

Keep the resume simple. Avoid using jargon because a recruiter might be not be an expert in your area of specialization. Every winning resume has a personal career objective. Your objective should reflect that you are business minded.

An impression that you are technical oriented might be a great undoing.   Lastly, keep updating your resume. Indicate any newly acquired awards.

An updated, simple and brief MBA resume is all it takes to get that six-figure salary job you have always wanted!
