How to Create a Resume
Have you ever wondered what makes involvement stand out on a college application? We have some tips to help!
1. Describe It
It’s important to describe both your role and the organization you were part of. If an organization’s name doesn’t communicate its purpose, be sure to describe that in your application in addition to the role you played.
2. Quantify It
Don’t assume the person reading your application knows how much work your role required. For example, how many hours did your role as a Student Council Representative require each week? Or, how many people attended the charity event that you organized? Put some numbers to the role you're listing, whether it's in hours of time or people involved.
But most importantly, be yourself and be honest by giving colleges a clear and accurate picure of your high school involvement.
