Outline the skills built in the role.
Committee members evaluate your application based on what you will bring to the program. While everyone has areas of opportunity, use your resume to focus on your strengths and how those will benefit your classmates and the program. These strengths can be highlighted in your work responsibilities, volunteering, or other experiences that may benefit you at UNC Kenan-Flagler.
To provide relative context to your impact on the organization, use quantifiable examples for results. You can consider things such as a % increase, $K new business, or 1% error rate. Even things that seem unquantifiable can be re-packaged! Consider highlighting a 100% project completion rate if you accomplished everything required.
Include leadership outside your current employer.
This tip may seem obvious, but many candidates neglect to include outstanding civic organizations and community groups. If you have multiple affiliations, begin with well-known national organizations such as Habitat for Humanity or the Susan G. Komen Foundation. If you participate in a lesser-known or local organization that the team may not be familiar with, provide additional context regarding the mission of the organization, and how your responsibilities align with that mission.
