Here's my situation: I have 6 months left in my active duty commitment to the Air Force and I would like to move from the cornfields of Nebraska where I'm stationed to the skyscrapers of lower Manhattan. I know Management Consulting is a completely different arena than International Trading & Markets, but my ultimately goal is to go to B School for International Business and I figure either route will get me there.

In the Air Force I am a contracting specialist and will have 6 years of contracting experience under my belt when my time is up, and my MBA is from Bellevue University (which is definitly not a top MBA school) but I really want to work in int'l finance.

With all this in mind, does my resume reflect all of this? Are there any ways I can improve it? Just looking to get a second pair of eyes on it. Any help anyone can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

Why did you only list the BS and not the MBA as well?

If you are looking to say 1 to 1.95 MILLION dollars in the airforce job description etc. it should be two MM's behind the number not one, M stands for 3 zeros not million. So if thats what you were trying to say I would change that. That is all I saw though. Thank you for your service!

First off, thank you for your service!

I would see what network your BA/MBA offers. That is the most important. If the climb looks tough I would assess all options, maybe even going to get a follow up masters at a different school. Your network is the most important thing, but that is just me.

MIT and some others let you sign up for two MBAs -- you can apply and be blunt and say hey i wasnt getting the options i wanted nor needed

if your MBA is part time and there are no timeline gaps in your resume, you don't have to declare it.

Send me a PM with your email (if the one you put on your resume isn't the one you actually use).

I'm a former active, current guard AF officer, just finished up at a good MBA program and might be able to help you some.

Define int'l finance

Use the veteran network- officers and enlisted, AF and the other four branches. I'm a vet. I went to a non-target, with a sub par GPA, and wasn't even a finance major. Now I'm at a major bank. You can do it, but you have to work for it and get a little lucky too.
