1. Brainstorm a list that thoroughly represents your work experience (paid, volunteer, and home responsibilities) education, honors, hobbies, interests, skills/strengths and extracurricular activities.
Examples of skills: (strong math skills, good driver, capable of heavy lifting, strong computer skills, capable of website maintenance, strong communication skills, good with children, multi-lingual skills, etc.)
Examples of activities: athletics, clubs, organizations, service projects (March of Dimes walkathon participant), etc.
