Annual Scholarship - Online Resume Builders

$1000 Annual College Scholarship

Online Resume Builders is pleased to announce our annual College Scholarship available for both regular students and also students planning on studying abroad. As a leader in the resume building industry we believe in helping the next generation of job seekers and college students.  By analyzing over 100,000 resumes we have found some of the worst resumes belong to students. Students have little or no professional experience, these candidates often struggle to construct a meaningful and detailed resume that will help them transition into a career post graduation.

We found there are various ways to increase students resumes’ effectiveness for hiring managers by including your achievements at school such as

  • Part time or volunteer work
  • Internships, club/society affiliations
  • Sporting achievements/certifications
  • Academic achievement & qualifications

Our scholarship program is designed to help college students realize the importance of building a strong resume. We hope that our resources can help students understand best resume formatting guidelines and even cover letter basics.

We are offering a $1,000 scholarship to the student who can create the best resume, each December the winner will be picked. This scholarship is also open to students currently studying abroad or planning on studying abroad within the next academic calender year.
