Creating Your High School Resume
Of course anyone hanging around this site already knows, I have a serious issue with old career materials. Well, add this one to the pile of irritations. First, it is dated. Obviously the impact of technology changes how we even go about finding jobs. (Note the recommendation of using Alta Vista for searching.) Second, resumes for high school students seems a bit much. The subtitle implies college and post college too. If the title said High School, I doubt a college level student or post grad will think this is appropriate for their needs.
The author also suggests that the resume shouldn’t be more than a page, unless they have some stellar extra jobs, activities, awards, etc. I question the advice of including ALL the awards and activities on a resume for a teenager. Most employers I know would probably not consider this a plus for a candidate. Most employers are going to wonder how that teen has time to do the actual job if they are busy with extra curricular activities.
This is a slam dunk weed in my opinion.
