To start off, I worked with my Startup Dojo coach to analyze other resumes and figure out what makes a good interview. Using that, we developed criteria on how I can make my first resume as effective as possible.
To make a resume, you have to create a detailed summary of who you are and who you want to become. Next, you must list some of your biggest/most recognized awards. Additionally, include where you went to school and for how long. Mention your volunteer work, where it took place, and an approximate amount of hours. Also, include extracurriculars such as student government, or athletics. If you participated in sports outside of school, don't forget to include that as well. Finally, mention notable projects, such as Science Fair or others.
Be specific and thoughtful. For example, if you win an award, reflect on why you got the award, what it means to you, and how you can continue to keep up your past performance to receive more awards like this.
Keep track of past achievements. One challenge I had this time, was that it was difficult to remember the specifics about all of my past accomplishments and work. So, to make it easier for future Ray, I plan to continuously update my resume as I do / learn new things.
Make a summary that accurately represents who you are and who you strive to become
