Resume Genius is a company that had helped tens of thousands of job seekers with one of the most difficult parts of the job application process: resumes. According to Resume Genius “some of the poorest resumes we see come from students. With little to no professional experience, these candidates often struggle to construct a meaningful and detailed document that will help them transition into a career, post academia.”
This is why Resume Genius decided to start an annual scholarship program. This scholarship aims to get students thinking about their resumes at an earlier stage of their academic career. Each December, Resume Genius will be offering a $1,000 scholarship to students who create a resume for a fictional or non-fictional character from television, history, literature, or myth.
