MBA-ize Your Resume

MBA recruiting represents a new level of serious competition for talent akin to moving from college to professional. As such, the resume that got you into Ross is unlikely to get you hired as an MBA. Attend this session to learn how to create a resume that gets you noticed at the MBA level. (Note: Unless you have questions or want a refresher, it is unnecessary to attend this session if you watched the MBA-ize Your Resume webinar in the Summer Recruiting Prep Course.)

Please note that this is an event that required pre-registration. If you did not pre-register for the Etiquette Dinner, we cannot accommodate you.

Dining plays a large role in American business. Lunches and dinners are common during the interview process and many business and client meetings are conducted over meals. Proper dining etiquette is essential during these meetings. Students will learn about western dining etiquette in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. International students will benefit from learning about western dining customs and domestic students will benefit from refreshing their dining etiquette.

Dress is business casual.
