Building a Resume

Building Your High School Resume
The types of classes you complete, academic achievement, participation in sports & clubs as well as volunteering all work together in helping you develop skills and abilities in preparation for your post-secondary education and a career.  To effectively highlight your skills and abilities, your resume must be clear, concise, consistent and easy to read.
 
Academic resumes are required for students needing college/scholarship recommendation letters.  A minimum one week notice is required for all letters of recommendation.  Resumes may be submitted via email or in hard copy to your counselor.  NO HAND WRITTEN RESUMES WILL BE ACCEPTED.  All students should have a resume on file in the counseling office by the end of September of the senior year.
