Resume Genius Scholarship (ID 1523)
- Start Date:
- Resume Genius is a highly reviewed, US based industry leader in resume services, having been in operation since 2008. Over the years we have helped tens of thousands of job seekers improve their resume, enabling them to make the next step in their life path.
Typically, some of the poorest resumes we see come from students. With little to no professional experience, these candidates often struggle to construct a meaningful and detailed document that will help them transition into a career, post academia.
However, there are a number of factors that can be incorporated into an ‘Entry Level’ resume to give the student a powerful and effective document, such as:
Part time or volunteer work
Internships, club/society affiliations
Academic achievement & qualifications
Our scholarship program is designed to get the student population of the US thinking about resumes at an early stage, ensuring they have practice in this essential area of career progression, before they head into the vocational world.
Every December, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who can create the best resume, based on the life of any fictional or non-fictional character, from TV, history, literature or myth.
