Make your resume visually appealing! Free resume templates are available on Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and other applications. Be careful if you use Canva templates because they often do not print correctly in black & white.
Resumes, cover letters/emails, networking emails, references, portfolios, etc. will likely form your first impression for many jobs, scholarship opportunities, and other educational/job opportunities.
The purpose of the resume is to be a clear and concise summary of qualifications that pertain to the position or opportunity that you are seeking, and should be limited to 1-2 pages. (The more concise, the better.) The goal is to attract sufficient attention to create an interview opportunity.
** Do NOT include a list of classes that you are currently or have taken at ASFA on your resume! Your school transcript includes a list of all of your high school courses and grades.**
To maximize your chances for success, we have created and compiled specialty-specific templates and resources.
ASFA's website software won't let me upload sample resumes separate from tip sheets, so note that sample resumes have the phrase "sample resume" in their file names below.
