Sample Resume for Students
Congratulations, you have endured the four years of high school and are now ready to matriculate on to the university of your choice. Having completed all of the paperwork including application, recommendation letters and scholarship forms, you are confident in both your school of choice and field of study. There is one thing that you might consider however, and that is probably your first attempt at a resume. This might seem to be an odd time for this type of document, but when you consider what it actually accomplishes, there is no better time than now to get practiced in crafting this one page paper.
The Resume is an introductory sales page describing a product which happens just so happens to be you. It serves as a condensed way of stating all of your positives to somebody who doesn’t know you and hasn’t met you. By demonstrating knowledge of this process early, you are getting the jump on at least 75% of the other freshmen who have enrolled along with you. This is looked upon very favorably by the majority of the acceptance team, especially if you have enclosed a resume along with all of your other materials. If not, one could always be sent under separate cover along with a brief cover letter stating your obvious penchant for the school.
Another way this could be useful is to present the document to faculty and staff in the selected field of study. By showing professors a resume, it indicates to them that you are serious about your college classes and want to make a good impression on the instructors. They will remember this and you will probably get preferential treatment when it comes to projects or recommendation letters for a job. It’s a good practice to select a knowledgeable professor and “hitch your star” to them. They can open several doors that might otherwise be a barrier in your job pursuit.
So consider writing that resume for college. Although it may take some additional time, in the long run there are only positives that come along with this document and your career is most likely to be assisted.
