“Find a good resume template and start to add in your extracurricular experiences,” Price told Re:Set. “Focus on your individual strengths, leadership positions, and accomplishments.”

“Simply put, colleges want to know who you are, what you’ve done, and what you’re interested in doing or intend to do.”
