FAQs about making a resume

How do I make a resume for a first job?

Trying to land your first job is an exciting time, whether you're looking for a summer gig during high school, or your first official employment after college. You may not have a lot of job history yet, and that's okay — include what you do have so far including internships, your education to date, any clubs or sports you've participated in, and list the skills you possess that would make you good for the job you are applying for. Compiling this info into a tidy one-page resume looks impressive and will definitely score you an A for effort.

How can I make my resume stand out?

If you're creating a printed resume, you can experiment with layout and style. If you're creating a resume to attach to a web-based application, then it's best to keep it simple for the AI scanner. But either way you can make a resume that performs well. For a printed resume or one you'll be emailing, check out our resume templates for creative and colorful styles that you can make your own. To please the internet robot gatekeepers, make sure to put keywords from the job posting into your resume. Make your accomplishments stand out as a bulleted list instead of in a block of text.

How do I make a college resume?

Resumes aren't only for job hunters, they're also used by high school students applying to college. These "college resumes" are a summary of your accomplishments in clubs, sports, extracurriculars, volunteering and, yes, even your summer jobs. Include your contact information, and sections on work experience, relevant courses you've taken, skills, awards or honors, and your interests.
