Do not compare yourself to the students whose sample résumés have been provided, but carefully review the type of academic achievement, service, leadership, and awards that helped them to be offered admission to top colleges and big money scholarships. Using these students as an example, you can develop a clear vision of what you desire your résumé to look like as a high school senior.
Refer to the résumé samples as you complete the Résumé Builder. You may also go to your high school’s website to identify clubs, organizations, and awards of interest.
Place clubs, organizations, or awards that you would like to join or receive in parenthesis to distinguish it as a goal, e.g., (National Honor Society), (Varsity Football Team), (Principal’s List).
