Please, destroy my resume!

Rank: Monkey | 57

Hello fellow monkeys,

I'm currently preparing for FT recruitment this fall in Europe. I'm aiming for MBB + 2nd tier consulting firms.

To give you some background information, I go to a target university in Europe and my recent internship was with a boutique consulting firm. I also just started my exchange semester in Australia and took the opportunity to participate in a consulting project for a non-profit.

I'd be really grateful if you could give me some tips to improve my resume. Tear it up!:

Please, be brutally honest wich my chances of getting in.

Thank you!

I would take off ranked in top %20 of class...

Specific reason? Take into account that in [european country] recruiters focus more on class ranking than gpa...
If you're saying it because 20% is not that impressive, I actually managed to boost my grades this past semester, thus by september I'll at least be in top 15%...

Thanks for the feedback though! Any comments regarding the rest of my resume?

Thanks for the feedback!

Like I said in my previous post, no gpa because employers here would rather ask for class ranking. No sat because we don't have them here.

Advanced football player but you never played at a collegiate level? That's sort of a BS red flag.

I get your point... I did play for a team but that was some time (4-5 years) ago. I also played for my uni team in some recent competitions. In any case, do you think it would be better to reformulate that or simply just remove it completely?

You can just take off "advanced" and leave football.

Will do, thanks! Any comments on the rest though?
