I reworked by resume for what must be the 4th time now in the last 4 days. This is the resume I'm sending out for jobs and NOT the one I intend to send to B-schools. Now it's down to 3 pages from 6 full pages. There were good reasons why it got that long. The key to getting it down though was when I thought of 1) Leadership 2) Initiatives I started 3) Simplying and grouping like tasks.
Now to repost to the web sites.
Anyway, I have to admit that it wasn't until yesterday that I realized just how much I was struggling subconsciously to bring all my guns to bear on my app process. It wasn't until I talked to a fellow blogger about a side issue of the b-school apps that I realized how paralyzed I was and not getting the productivity I needed to see on a daily basis on my app process and GMAT progress. It turns out that because of some issues I can't really mention and the struggle of knowing that I need to improve GMAT score were heavier on me than I was willing to face consciousely.
So for these last few weeks I was trying resolve my lethargy by positive talk instead of facing the real issues. I feel like I was given a turbo injection of positive energy because of this realization.
