First Resumes Can Be Hard
by: Kathi

Hi Jonathan... You're right, when you've never worked, there's a not a whole lot you can put on a resume. Things to think about including are your education, even if it's just high school, along with any majors or special honors you may have achieved.

Have you held office in any clubs? That can be useful info on your first resume, as can volunteer work or even jobs like babysitting and newspaper delivery.

Good luck to you in getting started in the working world!
