Consider the point you are trying to make with your résumé. When I say point, I mean that you should keep in mind what you are trying to communicate to the reader. This is super important. Every piece of information you share in your résumé should be relevant to the goal you are trying to achieve with your résumé. You may be thinking: “What do you mean ‘achieve’? I thought a résumé was just a list of jobs and activities I’ve done over my life…” Yes and no. When it comes to getting into your dream school, you should treat the résumé as an opportunity to provide an argument for why you should be accepted and that means your résumé should focus on results. Think of it this way: You need to cross a bridge and it is guarded by a dragon. The dragon is allowed to let a select few cross unharmed, and will only let you pass if you can explain why you are worthy of crossing. A fact-based, results-oriented list that shows you have concrete objectives and goals can do just that. Fear not. Plan out your argument. The dragon likes planning.
