Building a Resume Part 1

Junior year is almost coming to an end.  Before you know it senior year will be here and you have to…. dun dun dun…. apply to colleges! Completing applications is similar to trying to recite everything you have done in the last three years over and over and over again.  So before you start, take some time to build your resume.  Compiling the resume is time consuming on the front end, but will save your hours when filling out applications and will assist you in securing internships/jobs.  See below for the first step in building a resume!
