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 Ive 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.

you maybe should not have put your name on the web.
I would black it out.
