an class="full-image-float-right ssNonEditable">College students are in an awkward position when it comes to resumes. Because most of us aren't yet settled in a career path, it's difficult to come up with one document that will have relevant data for all of our applications for internships, jobs, and grad school. Some programs don't care about your club involvement on campus, while on-campus positions will be thrilled to know you're a club president; many internships want a mix of on- and off-campus involvement.
The easy solution for those of us who don't want to create an XML Resume is creating a master resume in our word processor of choice. It can be as long as you want. Create a document, formatted however you like, with everything you've done since graduating high school. Include jobs, internships, club affiliations, and personal projects. Name the document something that will alert you that this isn't the document you want to send--mine's named "Obnoxiously Complete Traditional Resume.odt." This is the resume that you will keep updated as you win awards, take on new positions, and complete research projects.
Then, next time that you need to submit your resume to an internship, research opportunity, or secret spy mission, pull up your master resume and cut out all of the positions, awards, and achievements that are irrelevant to what you're applying for.
