The perfect resume is a key part of your job search. It helps secure the interviews and will make you a more attractive candidate. We teach strategies for compelling and effective resumes. We work on some of the toughest negotiating challenges in high school so students understand the importance of negotiating for the best position possible. Our experience has given us a deep understanding of the challenges that both the student and the employer face. We provide scholarships for those who cannot afford their textbooks.

If we are teaching our students how to write literary analysis essays about the symbolism of the green light in The Great Gatsby, then we also should be teaching our students how to write effective resumes that will get them jobs. In fact, I think the latter is more important, and I say this as a teacher who is obsessed with Gatsby. (Just stalk my Instagram.) But I’m not trying to call you out or shame you for not teaching resume writing in your English class. I actually never taught resumes until this year, when I was tasked with the responsibility of teaching a new senior English Elective, “Technical Communication.” After taking on this class and teaching resumes, I am wholeheartedly convinced that every single student should be required to create a resume before graduating high school.

As a high school student, education and exploration of your interests (like sports or academic clubs) have likely been your primary focus. While you may not have a long list of job experiences, your participation in school, both in and out of the classroom, will provide potential employers insight into the value you’ll bring as an employee. This includes both academic achievements and participation in activities that prove you to be a balanced, well-rounded person. (Source: www.indeed.com)
