Writing a strong resume is vital at any age — from high school to college and beyond. Resumes are not only key to catching the eye of potential employers, but also help students look back on what they have accomplished (which can help them generate ideas for filling out college applications).
This bundle includes a number of helpful resources for walking students through creating their own carefully crafted resumes:
• 17-slide POWERPOINT SLIDESHOW that gives an overview of what resumes are for, what they consist of (content), what they look like (format), a list of resume Dos and Don'ts, as well as a sample resume.
• 2-page GRAPHIC ORGANIZER that students may fill out to collect and organize information for their own resumes.
• 4-page Microsoft Word document containing FOUR SAMPLE RESUMES (may be used as a handouts and/or as resume templates for students).
• 1-page list of useful RESUME VERBS which are especially useful for creating a resume that makes an impact.
