Sections on a Resume

Postby AlexandraHope » Tue Jan 13, 2015 9:32 am

Just for future references, can everybody list the SECTIONS on their resumes? I know that we have an example of resumes but I thought this would also be helpful for students who are applying next cycle(like moi) who are confused on what sections are most important on their academic resume.

Here are my sections:
Header (Of Course)
Campus Involvement and Awards

I know some people recommend an "Interests" section specifically for law school resumes. I didn't because it seemed odd to put your interests on your resume but just a thought

I have my interests in my "personal" section. It's a good catchall for anything about yourself that could spark a conversation during an interview.

Realized this is for admissions to school, not employment.


Onward !
