Resume Building

While it’s important to keep up in your academics, another thing to keep in mind is your activities outside of getting good grades. Even if you’re going to grad school. Even then, you still have to do research projects and things like that.

After your freshman year, it’s time to open your eyes to the wealth of opportunities available through Lehigh. As I’ve covered in previous posts, there’s plenty to do.

Unfortunately, almost all of them involve a cover letter and a resume. Cover letters are alright, it’s just that if you don’t have a creative way of bragging about yourself, they can be a pain.

Resumes, on the other hand, can be quite tough to create, especially if you have no experience. The best advice I can give is to just find a template online, and just throw anything you’ve done in the past on to the resume. Then, take it to the career center. Schedule an appointment or something. They’ll start helping you pick apart your resume to create something professional.

Don’t go to them with nothing, however, that’s just wasting their time. How are they supposed to know what you’ve done?
