A resume designed as a high school student resume template needs to be easy to use and flexible enough to provide space to highlight experiences that may not be traditional employment experiences.
The Bright Entry high school student resume template is the perfect choice not for just high school students, but also for college students, and other entry-level applicants looking for their first job.
High school students with little job experience need to do everything they can to stand out and get employers' attention. This template is a great way to do this and provides plenty of space to use experience other than previous jobs to show how you are qualified for the new job you most want.
Have you completed high school classes that will be really relevant to the work you are applying for? If yes, this high school resume template provides space for you to include them. The resume also provides space for you to include extracurricular activities that you have been involved in and to describe both a past job and a past volunteer experience. But, even if you have never held a job before, this is the perfect template. Just delete the Employment Highlights section or rename it.
Other ideas of experiences you could include here include internships or even major school projects. Or, maybe your extracurricular activities were significant and show leadership strengths or skills that could be relevant to your new job. For example, maybe you were the editor of your high school newspaper or the head of the prom planning committee. Especially if you don't have employment experience, extracurricular activities such as these should be included on your resume.
