Helping Your Teen Find a Job: Tips for Resume Writing and Organization
Resumes are a single sheet of paper showing your best accomplishments and experience. Here are some tips for writing and organization:
Tip #1- Resumes are a single page, so your teen needs to include as much information as possible without being too wordy. Complete sentences and words like, “I,” are not necessary. For example: Learned MS Publisher and taught new students. Organized fundraiser and raised $500 during event.
Tip #2- Within each resume section, information needs to be presented in the same format. This makes it much easier for a reader to follow.
