A Few Purposeful Resume Additions & Extras to Consider…

Adding extra curricular activities tend to make it easy for hiring managers to scan through your document with a CV parser, so it’s important to consider tossing in volunteer positions or philanthropic sections to your resume.

Don’t be afraid to consider including additional sections that add further value to your resume, such as an interests and hobbies section. Adding hobbies and interests can help add additional value to your resume and make it more interesting for the hiring manager to read.

Adding team memberships to your resume can add additional value to your application, as can adding volunteer positions.

If you are volunteering for an organization, you can add your involvement in the organization and the duties you performed. For example, if you volunteer as a tutor for a school children’s literacy program, you can include your volunteer work and involvement in the program. Implementing relevant certifications to your resume can add additional value to your application, as can listing any relevant professional certifications you have earned.

For example, if you are first aid/CPR certified, you would include this information on your resume. This shows that you have first-aid and CPR training, which are necessary qualifications for many computer science positions.

A section for education can add value to your resume too, as can adding a section for professional certifications and continuing education. If you have a bachelor’s degree in computer science or another related field, a section for certifications and continuing education can help add value to your resume.

Think about your personal interests if you want to add additional value to your resume, as can listing any hobbies or interests that show you can perform computer science. For example, if you are an avid runner, you might include this on your resume, as well as an interests and hobbies section.
