Resumes and College Applications

Resumes are not a required part of the college admission process, but the information listed in a resume is comparable to what you should list on a college application or discuss in a college interview. Plus, it is always a good idea to have an updated resume on hand for applying for jobs or internships. As a junior or senior in high school, you may not have ever held a traditional job, but you certainly have other skills, honors, awards, accomplishments, and activities that you can list.

A resume will be helpful for teachers whom you are asking to write recommendation letters on your behalf.
