关于我

2009年7月份,我给一个老朋友(Simon FT-MBA,2010春季班)为申请MBA而写的Essay提了几点比较关键的修改建议。后来,她成功拿到Simon的Offer。再后来,她建议我做留学DIY咨询方面的工作,并向我介绍了我的第一个客户。最终,我的第一个客户也成功拿到几个TOP16商学院的面试并顺利拿到Duke Fuqua商学院MBA的录取。 本人毕业于上海复旦大学管理学院国际企业管理系,属于商科科班出身并且做过管理工作、有领导经验的人士。

Chicago Booth Resume Guide--Highlight the Impact of Your Work

 

 

Highlight the Impact of Your Work

 

 

Example 12

This student worked in a non-for-profit organization as a communications director prior to Chicago Booth and wanted to move into marketing. He wrote the following bullet two ways. Which is more preferable?

 

? Improved marketing material resulting in $30,000 of additional corporate sponsorships.

? Improved marketing material resulting increased partner sponsorships by 40%.

 

The first uses absolute terms ($30K) and the second relative ones (40%). One way to assess whether to use absolute or relative terms is to ask whether or not your audience knows whether $30,000 is significant. For the NPO, $30,000 was a great deal. The student felt recruiters with little experience in non-for-profits may not recognize this fact. In order to make clear the significance of the accomplishment, the student decided to use relative terms. He then developed the bullet by surveying everything he did for the project and by re-orienting the bullet around a specific action that he took.

 

? Developed creative messaging for new promotional materials that increased partner sponsorship by

40%.

 

 

 

Example 13

This student had extensive experience as an IT consultant. She had the following bullet on her resume.

 

? Identified opportunities for alliances and partnerships. Conducted exploratory meetings with potential vendors for partnering opportunities in customer care, payment processing, and content management.

 

As is, there are several strong elements within this bullet. For instance, “identified” is a strong and active verb. Further, the bullet is about creating opportunities. Still, it’s not yet clear what became of her effort to “identify opportunities”. Where any of these opportunities pursued? If so, to what end? The student improved the bullet by highlighting the value of her efforts.

 

? Identified cost saving measures, researched key vendors, and initiated partnering discussions. New relationships reduced client’s operating expenses by 12%.

 

 

 

Example 14

This student worked for a non-for profit organization prior to Chicago Booth. As a part of that experience, she managed a citizenship drive that encouraged immigrants to apply for U.S. citizenship. She had the following bullet on her resume:

 

? Managed teams of 10-15 volunteers for naturalization seminars.

 

The results of her management are unclear. To what ends did her efforts lead? How did her leadership improve the drive? In this case, the student felt that her leadership did make a big difference. When she examined everything that she did, she realized she made several changes in the organization of the staffing. Her re-organization and training allowed the staff to be much more efficient. She captured this result in her revised bullet.

 

? Trained, managed, and motivated teams of 10 to 15 volunteers for a mobile citizen application effort resulting in improved processing efficiency by 60%.

 

 

 

Example 15

This student worked as an analyst in a bank and wanted to move into an investment analyst role.

? Developed an index of hedge funds with investment styles and key players for use by the Prime Brokerage Capital Introductions desk.

 

It’s nice that he produced a report. But how was this report used? What was its value to the organization? It’s difficult to quantify the impact of a report. You can, however, ask how your analysis affected organizational decision-making and/or operations.

 

? Authored a detailed research report on the effect of demographic shifts in municipal and agency bond pricing. Results employed by Head of Fixed Income Research to refine overall fixed income strategy.

 

 

 

Example 16

This student served as an assistant in an asset management firm.

 

? Disseminated relevant market information to management team as well as assisted in the execution of market trading.

 

This is a description of what she did on a routine basis. Because it was a routine process that she did every day, it’s hard to identify a single instance of this activity that yielded measurable results. Still, her information was important to the people who used it. She revised the bullet in an effort to show the value of her information to those who used it.

 

? Disseminated relevant market information to management team allowing just-in-time analysis that drove trading strategies.

 

 

 

Example 17

While working as a tax accountant, this student helped bring on-line new audit software for use in engagements.

 

? Formulated new data analysis methods following switch to new software. Promoted procedures to seniors, creating protocol.

 

What was valuable about the new methods? Did they improve the audit process by making it more accurate? Did they make audits more efficient? Perhaps the accomplishment was simply being able to introduce a new system in the midst of an audit while maintaining the quality of service to the client.

 

? Formulated new data analysis methods allowing audit teams to more quickly identify client problems. Promoted methods.

 

 

 

Example 18

This student described a contribution while serving as an analyst in an investment bank as follows:

 

? Created financial services valuation template adopted by San Francisco office for standard use.

 

This bullet is good in that it points out that his template became an office standard. The bullet is fine as is. Can it be improved? Perhaps by indicating how the template improved on what previously existed, though his re-write does sacrifice some brevity.

 

? Created financial services valuation template that highlighted salient factors driving the valuation; template was adopted by San Francisco office for standard use to engagement managers and authored new protocols.
