-what you can do to help the team
-fine points about your character, provide examples

As long as you don't mention that you started a 32 page thread about asking one girl out, you should be golden.

hate resume writing, especially for getting a job. I don't like talking about myself and hyping myself up because when i read it, it makes me look like im full of myself. And i hate that i can't be brutally honest.

Do you have to write a resume in addition to the paragraph?

I never had to write a resume for school positions.

In that case try talking to them in person. Or if you have a friend that knows them, get them to talk to them for you. Chances are they will just pick people they know instead of the "smart" choice.

So grade 9 ended and I never really got to talk to her since she doesn't wanna sit beside me. She gives me a look at times but idk whether she's saying who that *edit* sitting there or something negative. I want to talk to her but I don't think she wants to. What should I do, I'm going back to school and I will probably see her. I know this is a pointless topic but it means alot to me. I have been thinking about it for a while.

I used to work in an industry where all I did was professionally write resumes. You can PM it to me and I can give a quick glance over if you want.

any quick pointers on what to add if you want to help run a basketball drop in session for kids at the community center?
I said I am first aid certified, coached kids last summer, and worked for the town communtiy several times. It is a simple email letting him know I am interested.

Don't waste their time with fluff...get to the point.

These are excellent suggestions:
-why you want to be an exec
-what you can do to help the team
-fine points about your character, provide examples

I would also add in any relevant experience you have that relates to the position you are applying for (no shit right haha).

Keep it short, 1 page is fantastic but don't go over 2.

- Get the persons name who will be reading your resume and write a cover letter (unless they don't accept them) and address the letter to them.

- Don't have any spelling mistakes, sure it's dumb but it can kill you...have a lot of people look it over...for example my colleague accidently applied here with his resume saying "Trained other staff how to handle inbound balls" instead of Calls. Spell check won't get everything.
