THE ART OF THE RESUME

Reading between the lines takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to resumes. Let Highbrow help you wade through the BS.


OBJECTIVE

  • Seeking a position as [insert anything here, really]——Seeking a diet of more than just Easy Mac and free Dunkin coffee every time the Eagles win. 

SKILL SUMMARY

  • Proficient with with Word, Excel, and conducting Internet research——I use Word for school essays, and have used Excel a few times for Intro to Biology Labs. Additionally, the Internet is my go–to tool for any question I may have, including “How many days are in September?
  • Extensive experience working with children in a variety of settings——I’ve babysat not just one, but three different kids that may or may not have been related to me. They loved me!

EDUCATION

  • University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA May 2019
    • Bachelor of Arts
      • Major: Communications——Two years was not nearly enough time to figure out my life… so no, Communications is not a useless major, and yes, I am looking for a job in finance. Why do you ask?
        • Minor: Consumer Psychology——Name-dropping Wharton makes me much more marketable, and it only took a few cutthroat classes!
      • GPA: 3.0/4.0——I thought I was going to be a chemistry major. Mom, Dad, don’t worry. The good ole GPA is slowly back on the rise after I dropped all my STEM classes.

    • Mentors freshmen and handles situations of extreme pressure = Once, a resident got so drunk she peed in the kitchen sink, and I had to clean it up. To be fair, they’ve gotten me back into bed before. It’s a symbiotic relationship.

    • Creates weekly content using Adobe Photoshop for a growing consumer base of 17,000 = Catch my memes on OUPSCC. Toss me a like if you’re feeling generous.
