Your resume for your graduate business application to the Fisher College of Business may look different than your professional resume (e.g. the one you use for a job search, etc.). Your resume provides information about you that may not appear elsehwere in your application.
- Here are some tips to submit an effective resume for your application:
1) Make it easy to read
We have read resumes that are all over the place when it comes to format. Spacing is too big or too small. Font size is too big or too small. Font type is hard to read. The list goes on. There are plenty of good templates you can use – if you’re unsure which format to use, we recommend a modified version of the one used by Fisher graduate students. Click here for the templates. (Scroll down for the examples of resumes by program.)
- Font size: We recommend 12 point
- Font type: We recommend Times New Roman or Arial or a similar easy-to-read font
2) If the additional info is relevant, a resume longer than one page is fine
3) You do not need an objective statement
4) Please proofred proofread!
5) References on your resume? Not needed.
Put forth as much effort and care with your resume as you do with all other parts of your application. Submit a strong resume and it will reflect well on you.
