Lesson 6: Build a High School Resume

If I put you on the spot by saying, “Tell me about your biggest achievements in the next 20 seconds,” would you be able to do it?

I couldn’t. But my resume can!

How to Write a High School Resume (and Why You Should)

When you’re a high achieving high school student, it’s difficult to keep track of everything that you do. This is why I recommend building a resume from an early age. 1) It serves as a running log of your accomplishments, and 2) it allows you to quickly create a first-class resume for your college application. Plus, you’ll have a head start on everyone else when you start applying for internships!


Dropbox and/or Google Drive

It’s important that you keep track of all of your files (awards, press articles, transcripts, etc.) so that you can access them at any point, from anywhere. If you don’t already, begin to back up your files on Dropbox or Google Drive so that if your computer is lost or stolen, you don’t lose all of your files too. They are both free resources.
