What are some good things to put on a resume when you are seeking for a job as a High schooler?

I want to create a resume that brings out the best of THE BEST which catches their eyes to get accepted for a job. Thanks in advance ^.^

The resume they usually do not look at, they look at dozens of them a day, and usually they all say the same thing. When it comes down to 2 people, they look at the resume to see who did better in filling it out. The interview process is the time they decide wether you're hired or not.

The last time I checked, being a high schooler isn't a job one applies to or gets paid to do, it's more of a volunteer position. But good writing skills are helpful in any resume.

Dress like you want the job. I used to hire lots of people and I wouldn't even interview some just because they dressed to say "please don't hire me!!"
Best wishes!!

Usually people don't read resume thoroughly ,they just scan for keywords.
(e.g. SAT Score, Achievements and Awards, Social responsibility)
In your case it could be your GPA, Attendance ,extracurricular activities and your interests.

Skills, interests, awards, experience. I'm pretty sure the word 'resume' is literally supposed to mean summary, so you don't want it to be too lengthy, just a summary of you.
