The activities section of your kid's resume will likely take up the most space, according to Bahar. "Sports, instruments, acting, dance, church or synagogue youth groups, school newspaper, you name it! This is the bulk of the resume," Bahar says.
But even more important than the activities your kid participated in is the role they played in these organizations. "If you were a leader in an activity, this is where to highlight it. First, list the activity and then further call attention to the leadership position you held and what you did as that editor, VP, secretary, etc.," she says.
