I am a PhD in Biomedical engineering graduating next month from a well known university in China. Due to covid travel restrictions imposed by Chinese government, my graduation was postponed because I couldn't go back to my lab for my additional experiments. My first question is how to explain that in my resume? Would that impact the screening process when they see there are two additional semesters?
My second question is about the office, I am mainly targeting mackinsey, and I know that north American offices are opened for advanced professional degrees, but I could not find if the other offices are opened to this program. In fact, I am interested in the chinese offices (because I have studied there) and the Dubai one (cause I can speak Arabic). So if in any case they are not open to freshly phd graduates, and have a rejection before even getting an interview, would that prevent me from applying again in other offices?
And my last question is about cv /resume. I want to section my working experience into research experience, entrepreneurial experience and teaching experience? Will that be okay? Because I feel all of above experiences are relevant yet not in the same time frame. Some blogs explained that we should just put experience relevant to consulting. More, if I add my publications and conferences the resume would go to 2 pages! Another confusing point.
Please I need some guidance as I'm making this transition and I am very new to this filed.
Thank you if you read/ answer my message.
