Career Services Resume High School

What About High School?

Short answer - do not include.

  • Don't include high school in the education section of your resume, as a college student, it is understood that you completed high school.
  • Exceptional activities and honors from high school might be included in the Activities and Honors section IF
    1. the honor is one that very few receive (i.e., valedictorian, Eagle Scout, etc.) or
    2. the award shows an early interest in your career field.
  • IF YOU ARE A FRESHMAN, it is okay to include more HS activities - but get involved on campus so that you can drop these ASAP!
