Nobody can ever underestimate how important it is to have a good resume. First impressions count, and the first impression that a potential employer will have of you, is going to depend on how you present your resume. This is going to be your one and only chance to capture a potential employer’s attention, or for your resume to be tossed into the file of those they don’t want to pursue.

So how can you build a resume while still in school?

Review yourself

Being in school teaches you transferable skills to the workplace without you even knowing it. You have to spend time looking for them because teachers don’t have time in each class to point out the skills. For example – full time students are often adept at organisation because you are doing sometimes up to six subjects with multiple assignment and you fit them all in and on time.

Consider volunteering

This is an excellent supplement to a resume and helps build more transferable skills into the workplace. It demonstrates a well-rounded and grounded individual to a potential employer as well as a hard-worker. There are many opportunities for school students to give back to the community.

Focus on a Job type

Resumes work best when they are prepared for a specific job. So what kind of job are you interested in after school? Knowing the answer, will help you focus your resume appropriately. Not all types of resumes are useful for every job type, and you have to know the difference between a resume and a CV.

Close with referees

Make sure you contact these referees first and let them know you are using them. There is nothing worse than a referee caught off guard to ruin your chances. If your still working on sourcing referees or there are privacy concerns initially close with referees available on request. But make sure you have these issues sorted out before any interview.
