About the scholarship

CraftResumes works to get you the career you love. We do a professional resume service packaged for entry / professional and executive level jobs. We can help with career transitions, resume and CV editing and job specific targeting. We understand what it takes to get your resume noticed by the employers, and how hard it can be, especially for recent graduates. CraftResumes community involvement encompasses fostering of an effective transition from college to the workforce.

Scholarship Background

Traditionally, you have something to offer employers and we help to bring that out in our superb resumes, cover letters and follow-up letters. Yet, with a recent graduate resume things are getting a little more different. Right now the workforce is more educated and competitive than ever, with entry level positions requiring at least a year of experience, you need to prove to a potential employer that you are the right candidate for the job. It is important that students get empowered about how to market their personal brand to potential employers. We welcome your vision of an effective student transition to a successful career. The winning student will receive a $1000 scholarship and will get a chance to complete a 1-3 month paid internship in our Chicago office. The finalist entries will get chance of being published on CraftResumes blog and social.
