Resume - where to put publications

Post
Anyone have an idea of whether it's appropriate to use pg 2 of a resume to include a publications list? I spent the last 3 years researching and writing and have 13 publications to show for it. The topic of the papers (energy) pertains to what I want to do post-MBA. Is a full publication list gratuitous? Should I just mention on pg 1 of the resume that I have 13 publications?

Hi

I understand how difficult it is to stop oneself from writing something which you feel is so important.

If you want to...add a few say 5, use commas to separate and mention in 13 in total. Use some strong word to depict importance. Dont mention all 13.

Best of Luck

I'm gonna have to disagree.
First of all, most schools DO allow you a two page resume. It doesn't mean that you have to use the ENTIRE second page for publications only as you would in a industry specific MBA. But there's probably other things you can expand and add (Like community service section, more extra curricular stuff etc.). anyhow the decision whether to leave in or put something goes as follows:
If it can be impressive we leave it in. We remove in relative function of what ELSE you have in your resume. So if you have five pages we gotta take out SOMETHING! But publications do establish you as an expert, so they should be in.

Do you need a list of your publications depends on what position you are moving to. If you think this will be a very important plus for getting a job, better put a list after the information about your studies or work. If this is not very important, just make a small annotation about your publications in description of the work functions (if you published them during work) or facts about your studies (if you published them during the study period). Or even forget about them. But if you doubt, it's better to use help of top5resumewriting.services and they will help you with this.

If you feel those publications contribute to your candidacy, try to include some of them on your resume, but you have to follow the instructions of the schools you are applying to - some of them have a 1 page limit for resume, as you can see here: https://aringo.com/mba-resume-tips-and-requirements/

That's a tough one! I'd say, take it on a case-by-base basis. As a rule, you don't want to bury the adcom with data, because the more you write, the less they read.
I have certainly worked with clients where an extra page of publications was appropriate; sometimes applicants email the schools for guidance and are told to use the Optional Essay for that, rather than a second page of the resume.
Bear in mind that not all publications add strategic value, but if they include front-facing presentation at industry conferences or publications in mainstream periodicals rather than obscure journals, it can be worth the extra space.
That said, in most cases I've found that integrating them chronologically within the job heading or university studies in which this publication took place is the best way of keeping resume-bloat under control.
Good luck!
