1. Be Mindful of Spelling Mistakes

The last thing that you want to do is send out a resume that's full of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Employers may toss your resume into the trash if they see even one spelling mistake. 

Having spelling mistakes on your resume can make you appear sloppy and unorganized. You want to make a good first impression. 

Everyone is human, and everyone makes mistakes. The best way to ensure that your resume is spelling mistake free is to ask a friend or family member to proofread your resume before you send it out. 

2. List Your Education and Any School Projects

Whether you just finished secondary school, or you recently completed college/university/trade school, make sure that you list all of your education on your resume. 

After you've listed your most recent education, then think about any school projects that you worked on that may be applicable to a job or work experience. Did you create a Powerpoint presentation for one of your school projects? Did you work within a team? Mention any projects that are transferable to the position that you're applying for. 

3. Mention Your Volunteer Experience

Last, not certainly not least, list any volunteer experience that you have on your resume. High school students in Ontario are required to complete 40 hours of community service in order to graduate. It would be a great idea to list your volunteer experience on your resume. 

Not only does your volunteer experience show that you are a caring and passionate individual, but it also shows that you are responsible.
