Why Eden’s High School Resume Works
How can someone without much work experience still create a memorable and impactful resume? Eden’s resume shows us how.
Step 1: It doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not
From the content to the tone, it never pretends to be something other than a high school resume. So instead of trying to hide that, Eden embraces it. His resume mentions his schoolwork, the ubiquitous Youtube watching of modern high school students, and his struggle to save for his first car.
Step 2: It finds unique ways to show experience
Instead of leaving this section blank, Eden’s resume focuses on volunteer experience and even experiences in his classes. This expanded idea of what “experience” is allows for him to highlight more of his interests and accomplishments. Add to this his caravan restoration project and you have enough content to fill a solid page of a resume.
Step 3: It shows his passions
From Liverpool Football to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Eden’s resume gives great examples of what he cares most about. The result is that it goes a long way toward painting a picture of him as a person: his strengths, weaknesses, and what he truly loves doing.
