Crafting A Remarkable MBA Resume


You only get one chance to make a first impression. Often, you get five seconds or less to keep people’s interest.  That’s a scary truth if you’re spending days drafting the perfect essays.

Of course, your adcom members might not read your essays if your resume doesn’t stand out. Why? Well, your resume is the first part of your application that they see. And it ultimately determines how much time they spend on you – and how seriously they take your candidacy. So how do you produce a resume that solidifies your credibility while sparking your adcom’s curiosity? Check out this classic from Poets and Quants to learn more.

The Engineer And The MBA

An engineer and a MBA went camping. The engineer wakes the MBA up in the middle of the night and asks him: “Hey, look up and tell me what you think.”

The MBA, still a little sleepy, replies:

“Well, by the positions of the stars, it should be around 3:30 AM. Meteorologists would predict a very nice day for tomorrow, with clear skies and warm weather. From a religious perspective, all those wonderful stars demonstrate how small man is and how great his creator is. From an astronomical perspective, the solstice of spring will be in few days. And you can clearly see those famous galaxies that used to be closer many years ago prompting the big bang theory. Over there you see those constellations that were named by the ancient Greeks after their gods. The owls that you can hear are in the procreation season. Great philosophers believed that when man looked up to the skies at night…”

The MBA kept talking for few more minutes, describing everything he could see and hear and showing that he knew a bit of everything. Then he turned to his mate and asks, “And what do you see?”

The engineer answers: “I think that someone stole our tent.”
