Creating a résumé is an important step in preparing for the world of work. Students typically begin to keep track of their work experience with the aim of building a résumé from the very beginning. They include any type of volunteer or community experience, as well as any paid work experience.
Students participate in a variety of vocational experiences and keep a running log or list, using a braille notetaker or a print copy. It would also be possible to create an audio file, using speech to text.
Once students have a list of vocational experiences compiled, we introduce a more formal approach to creating the actual résumé.
