This year’s Resume Companion $1,000 scholarship competition was the biggest yet, with thousands of submissions from all across the country!
Before we announce this year’s glorious winner, we’d like to thank everyone who participated. The creativity of the submissions we received made the evaluation process highly entertaining – we laughed, we cried, we gained a deeper understanding of the cosmos.
Needless to say, choosing the winner was no easy feat, but in the end one resume stood out amongst the rest.
Congratulations to Hallie Isom of Samford University! Her brilliant Agent Peggy Carter resume was creative, well-written, and – most importantly – made us really want to hire her to run Resume Companion’s espionage unit!
For those curious (or filled with envy) you can find Hallie’s submission below.
But first, we’d like to share some tips for success to help future applications:
- Don’t write a Groot resume that just says “I am Groot” over and over. (we get dozens of these)
- Use bullet points when writing your character’s work experience (paragraphs don’t belong on a resume)
- Quantify your character’s work experience and achievements with numbers (this will make your resume stronger and more convincing)
- Read our guide on how to write a resume before beginning.
- Check out some of our resume examples to get inspiration and learn about proper resume formatting.
Now, without further ado, time to present the winning resume!
Winner: Agent Peggy Carter by Hallie Isom
While it may seem like a bad idea to show everyone the declassified version of Peggy’s resume, we’re pretty sure Resume Companion’s readers can be trusted!
Thanks again for everyone’s amazing resume submissions, we look forward to what’s in store for next year!
