How to Build Your Resume in College

A resume is a targeted summary of your education, skills, accomplishments, and experience, serving as an introduction and first impression of you to potential employers. Use these tips on how to enhance your college experience so it will stand out.

  • Sign up for a new project: You can use your college writing, presentations, and projects to support your experience in a resume. Are you doing community service, writing for a campus newsletter, or shadowing anyone? This all counts as relevant experience.
  • Make a LinkedIn profile: By making a LinkedIn profile with a personalized URL, you can direct employers to a more detailed version of your experiences and establish connections within industries you are seeking employment.
  • Apply for scholarships: The scholarships you receive, especially for academic merit, can endorse your abilities to potential employers, and show how you can add value to a role.
