While most teen job applications do not require a resume it is better to include a resume with your job application since it helps give the prospective employers to have a detailed insight into your employable skills. One might wonder: I have no experience, my high school diploma is incomplete, so what do I write in my resume? The answer is ‘skills’. As a high school student, your resume must feature your transferable skills and if you have any volunteer work experience even if it was unpaid make it count.

In case you are not seeking a job or internship at the moment, consider making a resume for yourself to aid you in the process of seeking admission in college. Before you realize, the deadlines for college applications will show up and at that time if you have a resume ready, it will help you in answering many otherwise difficult and confusing questions asked in the admission process. Preparing a high school resume will also help you in self discovery. You will be able to identify and establish your strengths which will later help you in making a career choice.

We have provided a sample high school student resume below for your guidance.
