Application Resume vs Job seeking Resume

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm applying to Stat MS programs this cycle and I'm wondering if there are any significant differences between a resume used in grad school application vs a normal resume for job seeking. 

Are there anything I should add, take out or emphasize in the application resume?

Thank you very much

It should be okay to just submit your regular resume. If it were for a PhD application, it might be better to submit a CV (even if the CV is really short for many statistics PhD applicants, a CV signifies your interest in potentially pursuing an academic/research career). For a Masters degree, the regular resume is fine... if they even look at it that closely.

Yeah, I would say it's pretty much the same - if you had publications, depending on the job, you probably wouldn't put them on the resume whereas you definitely want to include that on an academic one. It's not a super important part of the application since you fill out all the same info in the application itself and your SOP.
