    After having at least 5 lessons on writing a resume in HS you think I'd remember a little bit. From what I do remember I think there's 2 ways to do it.

    2 pages - 1 is a cover page(name, address, Phone number,email,date) and the second is all your work experience, hobbies + interests, skills, community service if any

    1 page you just include what was on the cover page at the top of the resume

    One page example:

    Name Date
    Phone Number

    Work experience:

    Name of Work.... Dates you worked (from - Until)
    What you were responsible for at your previous job.....
    Work shifts....

    Community service:

    Name of the place or person.....
    What you were required/asked to do......
    How many hours(total).....

    Skills/character traits:



    What you had to do within that activity that demonstrates your skills

    ** this is all off of memory feel free to correct where I've gotten anything wrong haven't written one in a while. You could also Google "resume templates". Also the stuff in red is supposed to be on the right hand side of the page on your resume I just couldn't get it to separate.
