It’s also time for college seniors to start thinking about what they are going to do after graduation. For those of you who aren’t planning on joining a commune, here is some advice for college grads constructing their first post-college resume.
How to Construct Your First Post College Graduation Resume
- You don’t have a lot of experience. That’s fine, you wouldn’t be expected to. So put your education first.
- Don’t include your GPA if it’s under a 3.0.
- If you put a lot of work into a club or association, don’t be afraid to make that the focus of your resume, as long as it’s at least a little relevant to the kind of jobs you are applying to.
- If you volunteer, make sure you put the amount of hours you volunteered. It will separate you from the many people who volunteer somewhere for an afternoon and then put it on their resumes.
- Don’t put classes on your resumes. Do put academic projects on your resume. That way you’re not showing what you learned, your showing how you used what you learned, which is much more important.
That’s all for now. Happy hunting everybody, and congratulations to all you soon to be college graduates. Now go get a haircut and read about how getting a job is a numbers game.
