Comment How to make a resume after getting a degree - A lot of job seekers don't include their "non-jobs" (i.e. non-paid activities) on their resume. You can take advantage of this with some creative language, and present these non-jobs in a way that shows their relevance to the job you're applying for.

Remember: potential employers don't care about what you want, they care about what you can do for them.

In the "Experience" part of your resume, include things like past volunteer work, extra-curricular activities and clubs that you're passionately involved in, and things of that nature - and describe your role as if it were a "real job".

So, for example, don't just write "volunteered for summer, teaching children" - speak to your duties. You might want to instead write "experience managing large groups of people, developed engaging training materials to help foster expertise".

Note: TWiki has system wide preferences settings defined in TWikiPreferences. You can customize preferences settings to your needs: To overload a system setting, (1) do a "raw view" on TWikiPreferences, (2) copy a Set VARIABLE = value bullet, (3) do a "raw edit" of your user homepage, (4) add the bullet to the bullet list above, and (5) customize the value as needed. Make sure the settings render as real bullets (in "raw edit", a bullet requires 3 or 6 spaces before the asterisk).
