Asst. 13 - Creating A Resume

Resume Help
A resume (pronounced res-ooh-may) is essentially a summary of your experience, skills and qualifications. If it is correctly prepared, it is easy to read and conveys a lot of information on one page. Check out the link provided to get an idea of the function of a resume. At this point, you may not have a lot of work experience, but you likely have experience in extracurricular activities and volunteering. These are the things that should be highlighted to demonstrate how competent, organized and reliable you are!
Create a resume. You can use either Microsoft Word to create a resume from scratch, or you can use a Microsoft Word Wizard* to create the resume. Attach the completed resume to an email and send it to your coordinator. Name your document as first initial, last name and WBL resume. For example, the document would be called aLastNameWBLresume *The idea of the wizard is that it prompts you to add your information and then it generates the document, which you can then tweak. Depending on the version of Word you are using, go to File, then New, then choose the resume template you want. If you can't do this, you might want to talk to your guidance counselor about taking Microsoft Office next semester - it's a great course!
