Hello there! I recently went through the college application process with my child and learned a lot about creating a strong resume. Here are some tips to help you out: 1. Keep it concise: Limit your resume to one page, focusing on your most important accomplishments. 2. Organize by categories: Divide your resume into sections such as academics, extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and work experience. 3. Use bullet points: They make it easier for the reader to quickly grasp your accomplishments. 4. Quantify your achievements: Wherever possible, use numbers to demonstrate the impact of your work (e.g., 'Raised $2,000 for charity' or 'Tutored 15 students weekly'). 5. Tailor your resume: Customize your resume for each college to highlight the accomplishments that best align with the school's values and priorities. 6. Edit and proofread: Ensure your resume is free of typos and grammatical errors. Hope these tips help you create a resume that showcases your achievements effectively. Good luck!
