college resume question

<p>Hi I'm a rising junior in college and I'm applying for some research positions and whatnot. How do I write my resume? I know this is different from a high school resume, but because I'm only a rising junior, I don't have enough to make it a complete college resume like the sample ones found on google.</p>

<p>So my question is, what do I put on there? A mix of highschool and college stuff? I have some experiences, etc. at college but not much. Should I include stuff like research/internships from highschool and stuff like playing musical instruments (also from highschool). Do I also put the degree I'm trying to get in college?</p>

<p>If you don't have enough to fill a single-page resume, you should definitely include high school experience like the research/internships you mentioned. The first thing on your resume (after your name and contact info.) should be your university, followed by the degree you're pursuing.</p>

<p>Here's a good template you should copy (it's content is for a prospective financier, but the template is good for any college student): </p>

<p>I think its better to put your degree before your school</p>

<p>I was always told that once you complete your freshman year of college don't put anything on your resume regarding high school. It seesm like old news, especially like talking about playing an instrument, etc... Unless it is something really important, like you won the Nobel Peace prize, then I'd leave it out.</p>

<p>Leave out high school.</p>

<p>Education (only your college, your degree, major, year expected to graduate)
Work (employment/volunteer)
Leadership Activities (involvement in student organizations/clubs, etc at school)</p>

<p>Your career services should already have a few sample templates that you can follow.</p>
