Hi, I’m Marielena, I work on Google’s education team and live in Switzerland.
A resume is a valuable tool that can help you apply for jobs, internships, schools andspecial programs, or scholarships. In this activity, you will create a professionalresume. Your resume gives readers a first impressionof you and your qualifications.
It should be error-free, easy to read, and effectively provide a “snapshot” of whoyou are and how you spend your time.
Even if you don’t plan to use a resume right away, organizing your experiences and listingyour qualifications are useful steps to prepare for any future need.
To create your resume, you’ll use a Google Docs template. A template is like a guidefor building your document.
Templates provide standard layout, design, and formatting elements. They provide a consistentstarting point for your projects. But your resume will be unique to you.
You will add your own background, skills, education, and experiences to highlight yourindividual strengths. Then, you’ll revise your resume to makeit even stronger and more interesting to a potential employer or educator.
By the end of this activity, you will be able toselect and use a Google Docs Template, format different sections of a document,and download a document as a specific file type to send in an email.
