Why Your High School Student Needs A Resume

You might wonder why your high school student needs a resume!  Here are some reasons to get started building it – as early as 9th grade.


Need some help getting started?  Download this resume primer and follow the example on page 5 of the document (I think this one is easier to read than the one on page 4).  Notice that the sample includes the number of hours per week, and the number of weeks per year that you spend on each activity.  This is important information that colleges want to know!

Hope this helps you get started on your high school student’s resume.
