Can anyone please help me revise my resume?

Veteran

I am applying for several MBA programs, and do not yet have a discerning eye on how to build a great resume from my experience.

Thank you for tour service!

Hi Rhonda,

As a Marine for Life Representative (https://www.usmc-mccs.org/services/career/marine-for-life-network/), I would encourage you to reach out to me on LinkedIn as I would love to help you think through your MBA application process, including a resume review. I left active duty and attended a full-time MBA program several years ago and have lots of experience coaching others through this process.

I look forward to connecting,
Jansen

Hi Rhonda, always happy to give a military service member/veteran's resume a look through, once one or two others have first reviewed it.

If you would like, please send it over with the revisions incorporated from the recommendations provided by others: rahnir@newschool.edu.

Hi, Rhonda - just following up -- if you sent your resume that you were working on, I never did receive it. Please email to sharon.parker@charter.net - thanks!

Rhonda,

I'm a MBA Ambassador for Service2School and was an Armed Forces Group Co-Chair at Chicago Booth. 12 of out my previous 15 mentees have successfully placed at a M7 business school so I think I have a pretty good feel for how to optimize resumes for admissions. Happy to provide any other application guidance you may need as well.

Send to matt.johnson@chicagobooth.edu

Don't forget to reach out to the vet clubs at each of your target schools - networking with current students is an absolute necessity and the vet clubs will make sure you're hitting all the wickets in your application.

I've helped several Veterans via ACP with their resumes and certainly would be honored to help you. When you reply, please attach your resume so I can review and be prepared to assist you when we can discuss it. Thanks!
