Rank: Senior Chimp | 18

Hi all!

I'm pretty much a noob to this forum, but I've heard good things. I'm an incoming senior currently interning at a large global consulting firm in Chicago. I've posted my resume for you guys to tear apart, so please, be my guest! Semantics, organization, old BS I don't need anymore, go nuts!

-A couple things to note:

  1. I'm looking for a full time offer for management consulting. My school is probably a semi-target (top 15 undergrad business), so while I'd love to work for MBB, they don't recruit here. Therefore, I'd be happy with an Accenture or a Deloitte. In fact, the place I work at while in school has sent 2 of our last 5 interns to Accenture.
  2. Which consulting firms would I be able to get an interview at/would suit me? I'm interested in healthcare, but will do anything.
  3. I was kind of a slacker in high school, and chose to come to UW over an Ivy for a lot of reasons. I've worked a lot harder in college, and want to attend a top 10 MBA after working a few years. GMAT aside, is this realistic for me?

Thanks!

You've gotta make that thing one page. I've been out of school for 5 years and have no problem with a 1 page resume. Interns don't need 200 bullet points....er checkmarks?

Check marks are awful. Get yourself some bullets.

As for MBA, anyone can get in anywhere with a strong GMAT, good essays, and a few years of work experience. It's not some mythical pursuit. So yes, you should be fine. But this thing needs a serious edit. Check out M&I or management consulted templates.
