  • With 10+ years of relevant work experience, you are no longer limited to a one-page resume. To demonstrate your increased level of experiences and responsibilities, you may have a 2-3 page resume (typically one page for every 10 years of experience).
  • Categorize your responsibilities within companies that you’ve had an extended tenure by adding sub-headers for grouped bullet points to highlight your top qualifications. For example, “Strategic planning,” “Project Management,” “Training & Development,” “Data Analysis and Integration,” etc. Be sure to tailor and align the sub-headers with the skills of the job description for which you are applying. 
  • Include quantitative results whenever possible to demonstrate your impact.
  • Bold key skills and demonstrated results most applicable to the job description.
  • Write a professional or executive summary highlighting your unique industry-specific contributions and most relevant skills below your resume header. Keep it brief, concise and direct.

Case Interviewing

If you are interested in consulting or other management roles, it is likely you will be asked to participate in a business case interview as part of your interview process. Case interviews are interviews in which a candidate is tasked with working through a hypothetical or real-life question, scenario, challenge, or problem. The goal is to present a solution that demonstrates an informed and strategic process. You are evaluated for your communication, problem solving skills, ability to ask relevant questions, industry knowledge, and organizational process, not necessarily on whether you produce a correct answer.

Types of case interview questions may include:

  • Growth strategies
  • New market entry
  • Profitability or pricing optimization
  • Industry analysis and competitor dynamics
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Start-up/early-stage venture
  • Product development

Tips for a successful case interview:

  • Preparation and practice are essential! See below for resources to help you prepare.
  • Begin by restating and identifying the scenario, problem, or challenge
  • Ask plenty of questions intentionally
  • Talk through your logic and process out loud
  • Take notes in an organized, easy-to-read manner
  • Use simple numbers when appropriate
  • Stay up-to-date on industry trends and general industry knowledge
