Typically, some of the poorest resumes we see come from students. With little to no professional experience, these candidates often struggle to construct a meaningful and detailed document that will help them transition into a career, post academia.
However, there are a number of factors that can be incorporated into an ‘Entry Level’ resume to give the student a powerful and effective document, such as:
· Part time or volunteer work
· Internships, club/society affiliations
· Sporting achievements/certifications
· Academic achievement & qualifications
Our scholarship program is designed to get the student population of the US thinking about resumes at an early stage, ensuring they have practice in this essential area of career progression, before they head into the vocational world.
Every year, we are offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who can create the best resume, based on the life of any fictional or non-fictional character, from TV, history, literature or myth.
How to apply
Create a resume based on the life of any fictional or non-fictional character, from TV, history, literature or myth.
Resume submissions can come in word, PDF, or info-graphic format, attached to an email and sent to [email protected]. The body of the email should include:
University attending (if applicable)
Short explanation of whose resume you are submitting
All applications will receive a confirmation email upon receipt on our end.

1. Staff at Resume Companion remember the hardship of being a student so want to make this scholarship available to as many students as possible! As such, we do not require any sort of minimum GPA, and both domestic and international students may apply.
2. All applicants must be enrolled, or due to be enrolled, in full time university education for the semester they are applying to receive the scholarship fund. For example, a senior high student can apply during the Spring 2015 semester, despite still being at high school, as long as they will be enrolled in university for the Fall semester 2015 when they are due to receive the scholarship fund.
3. One application can be made per student, per year.
