What should I include in my college resume?

Hey everyone! I'm a junior and I'm starting to put together my college resume. I'm not sure what I should include or how to format it. Can you give me some guidance on what to include and any tips on making my resume stand out? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! It's great that you're starting to work on your college resume early. I've been through this process with my own child, so I can share some tips that might be helpful. First, make sure to include your basic information like name, contact details, and school information. Then, focus on including your academic achievements (GPA, class rank, and any relevant coursework), extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, community service), leadership positions, and any awards or recognitions you've received. Don't forget to mention any work experience or internships you've done, even if they're not directly related to your intended major. To make your resume stand out, try to quantify your experiences wherever possible (e.g., 'raised $5000 for charity' instead of just 'organized a fundraiser'). Also, tailor your resume to highlight experiences that resonate with the colleges you're applying to. Finally, make sure your resume is well-organized, visually appealing, and free of typos or grammatical errors. Good luck!
