What is Resumes for America?
Started in 2012, the Resumes for America (RFA) program provides university students with complementary access to our professional resume building software. In collaboration with more than 35 participating universities, we have helped tens of thousands of students create professional resumes to apply for internships and begin building their careers.
Why join the program?
The experts at Resume Genius have noticed that student resumes are among the weakest out of any demographic. Obviously, student resumes tend to be weaker due to a lack of real professional experience. However, a surprising amount of students also demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge with regards to basic resume formatting and appropriate resume content.
With Resume Genius’ software, students can create a professionally formatted resume with polished content in minutes. By joining RFA, you can give students an immediate boost in their initial job search.
