A college student resume can not be written just any way in order to be an effective one. Follow the following important tips while writing your resume.

• All your volunteering work better be mentioned under a heading e.g. Business Experiences”or “Work Experiences.”

• As understood, you must include any or all of your paid volunteer work(s). Unpaid works are not any exception to that. Just because you didn’t get paid for doing a volunteer work doesn’t mean that the work you did is of any less importance.

• Give yourself proper titles than just the label “volunteer” for the works you did. For example, if you helped raise money, then mention yourself as a “Fundraiser” or if your work was to take the special-needs dogs to walk, mention yourself as “Responsible for exercising the special-needs dogs” instead of just “dog walker.”

• Don’t forget to mention any skills you have learnt during the volunteering work you did.
