Company is based in Chicago and deals with Consulting, Restructuring, bankruptcy, etc. My cousin is very respected and successful at this company. He tells me there is an opening and we both agree it is a good idea to jump on the opportunity.

I graduated 1.5 years ago. This would be my first analyst position. I feel like I do not have much related experience, but I am a quick learner and adapt well. My cousin tells me I am more than capable at being successful. I want this position, so please bash the resume as much as you would like.

I need help immediately. Position is time sensitive.

    Sorry. My resume is honest and I need help. Thanks for that bit though, I appreciate it. Resume Updated

    I will do that if you think it's best. Current format is what my alumni association provided.

    That current format sucks. Change it ASAP

    Ok, I have not completed the resume yet as I have been swamped at work. I have some issues like the question you raised about my GPA.

    I had a medical withdrawal from my first university experience, I left the school with a 1.8 GPA. I was only able to raise it to a 2.95 with a 3.24 major GPA from my graduated university.

    I opened 3 companies while I was in school.
    Importing winter garments from s. america and having products @ Ski/Snowboard Stores on consignment.
    Refinishing and re-tuning Pianos- Worked out of a storage unit
    Club/Bar/Lounge/Festival Entertainment Contracts- DJ's, Live Performers, Security, Dancers, Promotions

    I paved my way financially thought school but never made it big.

    Also means I never had an internship other than College Works Painting my Freshman year of College 7 years ago.

    What would you include on your resume?

    I've never worked in "Groups" or Corporate Projects.

    Basically, I have an "in." I have the skills, but definetly not the corporate experience to prove it.

    Don't list GPA. If you handled funds in anyway at those positions, list them and specific numbers for experience. Do NOT put CEO, put Founder. Have you done any extracurriculars?
