First of all, Resume Companion would like to say a thank you to all that applied for the Fall 2014 $1,000 scholarship. It's great to see so much interest and I hope you all learned a bit about how to write an effective resume.
Following the July 15th deadline, the judges had an enormous task of reading every single application so we apologize for the delay in announcing the winner, however we deemed it only fair that each application was read.
We literally read thousands of resumes, for just about every popular character we could think of, from Santa to Jesus, from Hitler to Sponge-bob, from Hercules to Tyrione Lannister. So, without further adieu we give you (in no particular order) the 9 finalists along with this year's winning resume!
