When you're a college student or recent graduate it can be a challenge to figure out what to include on your resume. However, most college students don't have an extensive employment history and employers don't expect you to have significant work experience.

What to Include in Your Resume

If you're not sure what to include, do some brainstorming about all of your past experiences, including work-related positions, any volunteering you may have done, academic experience, extracurricular activities, internships, and any awards or special recognition you may have received.

Once you have constructed a list of all your experience, do include the jobs you have held and also include other relevant information on your resume, including your college information (school, expected graduation date, major/minor), summer jobs, volunteer experiences, internships, related classes, projects, extracurricular activities, and your skills that pertain to the position you're applying for.
