/ Asked by Brandon
I'm only one year into college and want to put my resume together. What are some things I could mention that might standout to employers?

You can include skills, computer programs, and hands-on training you're receiving in your classes as well as achievements you've had (Dean's List, Chancellor's List, academic recognition, etc.).  If you've held jobs with applicable responsibilities and transferable skills you should also add those.  Include volunteer experience, community engagement activities and sports or social groups you are part of as well. If you have already determined your degree program or area of study you can include that and indicate what your anticipated graduation date will be.

Everything mentioned by Meredith I agree with! I would also add in any projects you work on that are related, personal or academic. Take a look at the resume generator on jobipedia as well!

Great points by Sylvia and Meredith! I strongly encourage you to utilize the Career Services resources offered by your College. They can give you feedback and advice as you put together your resume, and also help you think through your internship and job search strategies!
