This year we received a record number of applications, some of which really impressed our panel of resume experts! It took us a great deal of time to review each one in full, but we wanted to ensure everyone had their chance.
With this being our third year running the scholarship, it’s interesting to note how the concept behind resume applications often mirror popular TV shows. Two years ago we were receiving Walter White (Breaking Bad) resumes by the dozen, this year not so many. Instead, we had an abundance of Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones) resumes to enjoy reading! Then there are the ever-popular characters that always prove interesting to read: Bruce Wayne, Harry Potter, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Jay Gatsby, Jesus Christ, Mickey Mouse, Odysseus, and of course Spongebob Squarepants.
We want to thank every single one of you for your participation, we hope you managed to learn something about effective resume writing and that this knowledge will help you find a job once you enter the workforce.
Without any more delay, I give you the Fall 2015 Resume Companion Scholarship Winner:
Steve Olivier Ouandji, Arizona State University: Tony Stark (Iron Man)
