Resume Toolkit: April 2019
The months leading up to graduation are beyond stressful. Not only are you fighting a severe case of senioritis (complicated further by being so close to both summer and lasting freedom from school and having to say goodbye to your friends), but you also somehow have to find time to search and apply for hundreds of jobs while continuing to keep up your grades, finish projects, and study for finals.
This resume toolkit makes refreshing your resume and stationary easy and time-saving. You can fill in your work experience—which many recommend gets placed before or in-line with your academic background once you're out of school, as well as all the skills you picked up both in-and-out of the classroom, academic recognition and awards, and any activities and memberships you may be involved with (and that you may have in common with an interviewer!) It also has dedicated space to include LinkedIn and portfolio links so that you don't feel the need to cram too much on your single page resume; anything that needs expansion or further details can be found at these places and explained in your cover letter.
Use this toolkit to showcase what you are capable of and to distinguish yourself from your fellow soon-to-be graduates. Best of luck in your last weeks of college and landing an awesome first adult job!

Now that the document is saved to your personal drive, you can insert your name, contact information, and other details into the template.
Once satisfied with your changes, you should Download as... a PDF document (.pdf) from the File drop-down menu. This ensures that the document is displayed as intended when uploaded to job applications, when printed, and when emailed to recruiters.
Also make sure to keep your documents in your Google Drive so you can easily come back and update details or tailor for specific opportunities.
