Resume Genius Scholarship 2019
Resume Genius is a highly reviewed, US based industry leader in resume services, having been in operation since 2008. Over the years Resume Genius has helped tens of thousands of job seekers improve their resume, and some of the poorest resumes we see come from students.
With little to no professional experience, these candidates often struggle to construct a meaningful and detailed document that will help them transition into a career, post academia.
However, there are a number of factors that can be incorporated into an ‘Entry Level’ resume to give the student a powerful and effective document, such as; Part time or volunteer work, Internships, club/society affiliations, Sporting achievements/certifications, and Academic achievement & qualifications.
The Resume Genius scholarship program is designed to get the student population of the USA thinking about resumes at an early stage, ensuring they have practice in this essential area of career progression, before they head into the vocational world.
