Resume Instructions

Although you have probably already created a resume, when was the last time you updated it? It is time to update your resume so that you can have it ready to give to teachers who might be writing your letters of recommendations or you may need it for employment, scholarship, or application purposes. Using the guidelines for creating a resume described below, create a resume that includes your professionl, academic, and extra-curricular experience.


The Art of the Résumé

What is a résumé, also known as a curriculum vitae or CV?

A résumé is a brief but detailed synopsis of your high school activities, your interests, your involvement in your community, and so on. A good résumé can, in a couple of minutes, give the reader a sense of how you spend your time, and what skills you have developed during high school.

When is a résumé useful?

A résumé is most useful as part of a job application or interview. It is also helpful to have one for a reference when you fill out college applications (helps you remember everything you have done) or have college interviews (can serve as the basis for interview questions).

A good résumé will often include the following information:
• Your name, address, phone number, e-mail address
• Education
• Honors or awards
• Clubs and activities
• Community service
• Sports
• Summer activities
• Employment
• Personal interests
• Special talents

Keys to organizing your résumé:
Your résumé doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s. Its format will depend on what you have done and what your interests are. For example, if you don’t play intramural or recreational sports, you won’t have a “Sports” category to complete.

IT MUST FIT ON ONE PAGE. This is standard for anyone applying for anything from high school and even for people applying for jobs right out of college. Remember, you don’t want to bludgeon your reader with information; a résumé is for highlights. If you don’t feel you have enough information to fill a page, adjust the margins and font size, however, keep it professional looking.
