Looking for advice with my M7 b-school application. Since graduating in 2009, my work experience includes 7 months at a boutique consulting firm, year and a half at a boutique/mm bank in s&t and what will be 2.5 years at a large well know AM firm in port management. My question is this: Should I include the 7 months at the consulting firm as part of my work experience on the application, my resume...? The section for work experience on the application (my first choice school that is) clearly states to include work experience you find most meaningful so doesn't explicitly state all has to be included. As for my resume, correct me if im wrong but I believe I can tailor that however I want. I don't mention it in my essay that contains info on my background and path to business school.
Pros- won't leave any gap in work experience (although 7 months could possibly go unnoticed straight from graduation). Firm consulted for operational aspects of banks so could be somewhat spun to be relevant
Cons- look more like a job switcher, not a well known firm, job was basically operations, could appear as if I didn't have a great plan post college
Thanks for the advice
