Resume Example For High School Student

Edgar Said:

High School Diploma or GED?!?

We Answered:

Diploma is the better way to go. A GED does not sound good. I dropped out of school when I was in 11 grade. I went back to school for another year when I was 20 so I could do it the right way. Its has paid off in the end!

How do i make a resume?

We Answered:

Besides setting all margins to 1", the most important criteria for setting up a professional resume besides relevant text, is "scanability." Here are some helpful tips:

1. Place just below your identification header [your hame, address, phone, email address] any Conditional Warning Statement such as "Confidential Resume,"Do Not Contact Current Employer," etc.
2. Always fill-in an Objectives category [just below the Conditional Warning Statement] and make sure that he Objective will contribute to the profitability of your future employer;
3. Select a mono-type font such as Helvetica, Arial, Courier or Times Roman; do not select any cursive handwriting styles which cannot scanned;
4. Keep font sizes within a range of 10 to 12 pts.;
5. Avoid styling text with a justified alignment, keep it flushed left;
6. Instead of using tabs to set up blocked text entries, generate a table and use the column and row settings accordingly;
7. Do not place an i.d. picture anywhere on the resume, this is a major taboo due to discrimination issues;
8. Do not place any graphic text [saved as .gifs] onto the resume since it may be overlooked during the scanning phase;
9. List at the very end of the resume your interests which should include travel experiences, language skills, social interactions such as golf, team sports, tennis, etc.

In conclusion, the above helpful hints were designed to allow ease of scanning of your resume into PDF which can then be text captured for seach purposes by your potential employer. If the original resume was created in Word, WordPerfect or Mac Appleworks, it can be Saved As a PDF file which then can be saved as an email attachment. Otherwise, you can simply use a scanner and scan a hard copy of the resume and then save as a PDF file.

Failure to conform the resume to appropriate fonts and styles as outlined above will result in rejection of the resume simply due to the inability of the scanning device to properly index relevant resume entries.

Good luck!

How do I write a resume'??

We Answered:

Greetings, My name is Norma and I'm a counselor.
first your information has to be in a resume like your whole name, address(the whole address), if you have a email, and a number where you can be reached at. Also it is good to have a your social security but when putting your social security put x' with the dash and expose your last four numbers of your social.
Put the school where you are studying and the school information.
Put any thing that you was or are involved in school and what year you will graduate or the year you already graduated.
Put your work experience, such as the name of the company, address, number, and if they have an email put it there too. How much they started to pay you and if you don't work there anymore how much was your salary when you left the job. Don't forget to also put the reason why you don't work any more.
Put references in your resume at least two or three and what are they to you. ***Note*** if they were your managers in your previous jobs or people that worked with you, that will be a plus for employers. Put their first and last name with a number that they can be reached at.
Last but not least, put down your skills, what are you good at and if you have anything additional skills like writing, typing, communication skills stuff like that it would also be a plus.
If I was you it is also good to put a title first page and write why would you be good for a job and put down some good points. I hope this helped and if you have any more questions write me a

I need some help making my first please?

We Answered:

yes, you can consider babysitting a job, because it does show responsibility and dependability. you can also use any community service at school that may be relevant, for example if you are applying for a more artistic job, you may want to include that you worked on a set of a play, or were in the drama/art club. Don't forget to include any academic awards you may have earned, that's always a bonus!
