Easy Resume Builders

Nowadays, there is a ton of pressure on college students to have an out-of-this-world resume that not only highlights your skills, but shows the you are “well-rounded”. It can seem like a daunting task and listing out abilities and experiences can feel overwhelming. So…to help you create all that amazing ‘HIRE ME’ material, we’ve compiled a list of simple resume builders. You’ll be surprised – some might even sound like fun!

1. Write for an online magazine or blog: If you have an interest, I’m sure there is someone out there who has already explored the idea in blog form. Do some research, reach out to the editor, and see where that takes you! College-based websites like Spoon University are always looking for new writers and telling a potential employer that you wrote for a blog shows both passion and smarts!

2. Start your OWN blog or Instagram account: Are you a foodie? Health and fitness crazed? Fashion addict? All of those passions can be explored through a personal blog or Instagram account. Social media presence is imperative in today’s world and building up your own shows potential employers how much initiative and drive you have all while you’re sharing, talking, and posting about things you love! That, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call a “win-win”.

3. Join a campus club based on your major or academic interest: There are dozens of clubs on every college campus, so it’s virtually impossible to find something you don’t like. Head over to the next club fair at the beginning of the semester and sign up for a few. Explore your passions and find other people who love the same things you do. Clubs are also an excellent way to branch out and network with people who might eventually be in your field of work. And if you reeeeally can’t find one you like, start your own!

4. Go Greek: Greek life may not be for everyone, but don’t rule it out just yet – even if you don’t consider yourself a typical “frat boy” or “sorority girl”. You may find that there is a Greek chapter on your campus that is just right for you; they’re usually not what the movies make them out to be. Greek life allows for great networking nationwide, a nice addition to your resume and an awesome way to meet people you may never have encountered.
