I took a class on career planning last semester and they told us to put all this crap on it and most people here and another forum say the opposite that we were taught.
Im wondering if the real world has changed without letting my professor know (wouldn't suprise me).
Would it look bad to not have any activities on my resume or could I put info about me being a member of my schools competitive speech team there or should I put that with my school info.
Someone else told me to take out my HS info, but I think thats stupid. I am not even 4 full years removed from HS and I want to highlight that I was Sports Editor of my school paper.
I think that you should take the description out beneath the accounting job. The job title is enough.
Take out "and services" from this.
Cleaned, maintained, repaired and resolved swimming pool problems and services.
The "and services" doesn't make sense. In fact it should say "Cleaned, maintained and repaired swimming pools and resolved related problems."
I think that you should leave the HS stuff in there - the sports editor and competitive speech thingy is good stuff.
