A resume is a good thing to have for any type of job, including a part time job. The resume represents a summary of work experience, education and skills that make the person a good applicant. Resumes need to be updated on a regular basis.
A resume provides a brief summary regarding the job applicant, including his college major and degree, his professional aspirations and his experience. Even someone just starting out in the professional world typically has something to put on a resume, whether he volunteered at his church or was active in a group or club in high school.
