It’s never too early to start on your resume! Have you volunteered or done some babysitting? What are your favorite subjects? What clubs have you participants in? You have experience, it’s time to start writing it down. Forget the resume template, it’s easy to set up a list of your accomplishments, skills, and goals. Learn how to use job descriptions to your advantage. If needed, don’t forget the cover letter and the importance of emphasizing your writing and communication skills.
