So while over spring break I decided to ‘professionalize’ my resume. I took everything off from high school and removed the overused and boring activities section. Instead of nonchalantly listing the activities I’m involved in and hoping a potential employer takes the time to read them and understand what they are, I decided to highlight a select few that I hold leadership roles in. For example I am in a fraternity at SJU and I used to have the name of the fraternity and the position I hold. This didn’t give any explanation or credit to myself to the amount of work I put into the position. I think its important to know how much time and work you put into your activities. However after doing all of this I wondered if the activities list would have been better to show an employer the plethora of activities I am involved in, even if I only just show up for meetings. What do you all think is better? Also what do you choose to highlight on your personal resumes? Thanks for the input!
