Please take a look at my resume and tell me any suggestions you may have. What would make it stronger? What don't you like? It's a modified template from M&I.

too much white space, too many classes listed causing the education space to be 50% of your resume (dont need to say three different types of accounting, or the actual exact classnames. finance, accounting, economics, stats; make it simple)

Did you do nothing as a congressional intern? That's the only one that sounds interesting and yet you are not showing you did anything worth mentioning.

Looking at your resume, I have no idea what you desire to do. If I had to guess Politics? So banks will say the same thing, need to attempt to orientate towards the field you are trying to get into

Sorry for the brash advice but its necessary

^ Yo boss look closely at the dates for his congressional internship again..hasnt happened yet. I agree that the education section takes up the majority of the page. List the certificate right after the MBA info and remove the space, assuming that the certificate is from the same school. Is your minor in english really worth an entire line on your resume?? I would either remove that or add it on to the same line as you degree/major.

Looks like the congressional internship starts in Jan 2013, hence no bullets.

I agree there is too much white space... can you add more details to your other past experiences? Also, I might recommend that you add a line at the very bottom listing some of your interests, to show a bit more of your personality and create the possibility that you and your interviewer might have something in common.

No point in blacking out the school if your leaving the town.

Thanks for the people who actually gave resume advice. I'm here to have my peers help me develop a better resume, so please do not trash my school. I'm a proud Raider and a proud Texan. I have no plans to ever attend a northeastern school, nor do I plan on ever moving to New York. I'm just looking for resume help, work experience suggestions, and things I can do to break into finance.
