Resumes for Graduate School

Graduate schools often ask for resumes—or at least a list of experiences—for admissions boards to consider in addition to your GPA and test scores as admission criteria. A resume for a graduate school application is essentially the same as for a job search; however, it is a good idea to structure the resume to highlight the skills and qualifications that would be valued in a particular graduate program, like research experience, related jobs or activities, and so forth. For more help writing resumes, utilize the resources at the Center for Career Development & Academic Transitions and consider having one of our staff review your drafts.
