Weatherhead Standardized Resume Format

The Weatherhead School of Management uses a standardized, required resume format for graduate students when applying for positions on our school system, CareerLink. CareerLink is a system that allows employers to request resume books of our students. Based on graduate school trends and employer needs, we have created a standardized resume that allows employers to easily access the content of our students' experiences.

Students in the following programs are required to have a resume in the Weatherhead Standardized Format in order to apply for positions within CareerLink: MBA (full time), MSM-Finance, MSM-Operations Research/Supply Chain and Master of Accountancy (MAcc). All other graduate programs are welcome to use the format, but not required.

Students can use our Word templates to edit and upload to CareerLink for approval.

Please email our office at wsom-cmo@case.edu if you have any questions regarding your Standardized Resume Format.


Cover Letter

In most cases, a cover letter is the first impression a recruiter makes about you. A well-written cover letter provides insight about your interest in the company and the position, delivers an focused message that goes beyond your resume, and lets your personality shine through. A cover letter should always be included with your resume.
