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 and consider having one of our staff review your drafts.
