Use MEFA Pathway to Easily Create a Resume

Why is a resume important to high school students? A resume is a written repository of an individual’s educational, personal, and professional qualifications and experiences. It’s used most often for employment applications, but high school students often use them in the college admissions process. If you know a student who needs to create a resume, encourage the use of MEFA Pathway, our free college and career planning portal. It’s intuitive and easy!

Students can start to create their own personalized resume in MEFA Pathway by adding sports, clubs, honors and awards, skills and strengths, employment, and community service to their Profile.
