Overview

The resumes of students are really different! Who else has job titles like Tutor, Camp Counselor, Lifeguard, Residence Hall Counselor, Intern, Student Teacher, Waitress, Sorority President, and Volunteer? How do you show clinical rotations and unpaid work experience on a resume? How can you use your achievements in high school to maximum advantage? How do you write an "all-purpose" resume and cover letter if you don't know what you want to do after graduation? The best way to ensure a distinguished career is to start out your career with the best "first job" after graduation.

The theory behind the book is that "a picture is worth a thousand words,' and all resumes and cover letters shown in the book were handpicked. There are numerous resumes which illustrate how to show clinical rotations and internships on a resume, and the editor also gives insight into how to use volunteer work, work-study experience, and achievements to maximum advantage. The Table of Contents is designed to present actual resumes of real individuals with a wide range of interests ranging from accounting and computer programming, to sports administration and veterinary technology.

A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you are a student trying to launch your career or get your first "real" job after graduation, you don't need just any resume book. You need a resume book specifically written for students! You will love this book targeted specifically to the needs of students. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series:"Actual students' resumes and cover letters, targeting specific career fields and needs, are the primary content of this book, which serves well as a guide to students seeking professional employment after graduation. The book illustrates how to highlight internships and clinical rotations on a resume, as well as volunteer experience and achievements. Student resumes can be difficult to write because they actually sell 'potential' rather than experience, according to McKinney." - Baton Rouge Magazine"Distinguished by its highly readable samples...essential for library collections." - Library Journal"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy—with Real-Resumes in hand."— The Midwest Book Review

B. Bleo-Byford"After using Real-Resumes techniques, I was able to created specialized cover letters targeting trade associations and financial institutions." R. Knowles"I thought I didn't have much to put on a resume until the Real-Resumes Series showed me how to present my nonpaid leadership and volunteer experience." W. Gonzales
