i would say yes

especially if you went to a non target school. if you went to a target school, it honestly doesn't matter.

Experience on a Resume (Originally Posted: 08/29/2014)

Hey Everyone,

I had a talk with my career services counselor and she said now that I have built up more experience over the summer, I should consider moving it to the top of the resume and move my education down. I was a summer analyst for an IB, and a part time research intern for a VC fund. (Sleep was my elusive friend of the summer). I am from a non-target school and cumulative gpa is 3.4, with major gpa 3.7.

What do you guys think? Should I move it up? Or leave education at the top?

She also told me to get rid of my interests at the bottom of my resume. Thoughts on this?

Thanks andyour help is appreciated

Resume Question - Is it inappropriate to list work experience before education (Originally Posted: 02/14/2009)

If you're an undergrad applying for summer analyst or full-time positions, is it inappropriate to list your work experience BEFORE your educational background? I know that this is common practice at the MBA level:

1) Work Experience
2) Educational Background
3) Additional Information

I'm considering doing this because my educational background is sub-par (3.4 at Ivy target), but my work experience is really really good (sorry, not intended to come off as a tool). Why not put what separates you from the rest of the pack first?

Experienced Consultant Resume (Originally Posted: 09/15/2014)

Hey all,

I'm putting together an updated resume, currently about ~2 years in at a consulting shop. Right now I'm exploring a few targeted opportunities with similar strategy shops and some investing roles. I'm a bit removed from resume writing process and I'm just hoping to get some feedback on how the resume might be different with 2 years of work experience vs. how I went about putting it together as an undergrad:

  • Should 'Education' still go at the top, or should 'Work Experience' be listed first?
  • How much detail is typically provided on casework? How much should I speak to the results of the case vs. my personal contribution to the case? I'm guessing the usual advice still applies, e.g. using action verbs and quantifying things
  • How much should I include from my undergrad experience? E.g. should I still have an 'Activities' section with sports, clubs, all that jazz?

I'll be reaching out to a few contacts in the industry for advice (would like to keep it on the DL within the firm) but would appreciate any help from folks on this site. Realize that these are pretty basic questions, just want to make sure I'm not goofing up anywhere.

Thanks all!
