    Hi buddy

    I don't think mentioning extra curricular activities during your schooling will do you much good. But if you mention the extra-curricular activities which you had undertaken during your college period like participating in debates, being a part of some organization and participating actively in the discussions, sports activities etc then it would certainly make a great deal of difference to your resume and make it more impressive. It would also give you an edge over the other students in getting the job. Also you can attach the certificates showing that you have participated or have been awarded in a particular activity, to your resume orr show them at the time of interview. This would again make a difference to your resume.

    Also if you have done any extra course during your college days like a computer language ( C, Java etc), a foreign language or any other course like autocad; then you can mention that too in your resume and that will be highly beneficial to you.

    But if you havent done any extra-curricular activity or any extra course during your college days then I think you may mention those during your schooldays although it wont be of much help.

    So try to make your resume as professional and impressive as you can and also you can take the help of a professional resume maker for the same. Good luck buddy. Hope you get the job . God Bless

    dear aspirant,
    yes of course don't hesitate to keep them in resume.it would be good if you have won any trophies as it be additional bonus and suggest your interests. Make sure you maintain the order of education activities and followed by sports as most of mnc's look at the educational achievements and after that they look for sports.

    Thank u......

    Hi,

    You must try to include every single achievement of your,be it in school or during the college.
    But you must mention them in an order.
    First mention the recent achievements and then move to the achievements that you got in the past.
    So move from the "Least Recent" to the "Last" achievement.
    This will show that recruiter that you are really talented.
    Also make sure that you draft your Resume carefully.
    Make sure there are no spelling mistakes.

    Check out the sample Resumes that I have attached to get an idea of a good Resume!

    Bye!

    A Resume is all about yourself.

    - If you featch more good achievements in your resume that you have achieved, so that will help you more.

    - But it is very neccessary that no unneccessary points should be added in your resume.

    - Now you are making your resume for job in reputed company.

    - So you should not add activities like: Candle race winner, spoon and lemon race winner, etc.

    - You have to mention your achievement in educational sector like district/state level GS quiz winner, best student award, state/national player etc.

    - These things will add more power in your resume.

    Best of Luck.
