Should Your Resume be 1 Page or 2 Pages?

Posted By SWatts on Nov 17, 2011 | 0 comments

Many candidates question whether they should submit a one-page or a two-page MBA application resume. First, check the specific MBA application to make sure that the admissions committee does not restrict the length of your resume. If the admissions committee indicates it should be a one-page resume, then you should submit a resume of only one page. If the admissions committee does not place a restriction on the resume’s length, generally candidates feel comfortable submitting resumes up to two pages long. While, in the United States, you will usually fare poorly in job interviews if you present a two-page resume (the tradition is to have a one-page resume), this is not a job resume. It is an application resume, and there are several key differences between the two.

One main difference between the application resume and a job resume is that the admissions resume might have an expanded extracurricular activities section in which you annotate your most important extracurricular activities.
