# Start something
Starting self-initiated projects are an excellent way to acquire the skills that go into building and maintaining real world systems.
The university workload doesn't make this easy, since these projects require time and effort to realize, but we encourage students to persevere and pursue this path.
# Google's Guidance
Your resume is the first piece of information employers see about you. Here’s how to highlight your achievements:
Align your skills and experience with the internship or job description
Be specific about projects you’ve worked on or managed. What was the outcome? How did you measure success?
If you've had a leadership role in a volunteer organization or at a part-time job, tell us about it. How big was the team? What was the scope of your work?
Include your GPA, as well as school-related projects or coursework that demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge as you see fit
Keep it short: Aim for one page. If there’s additional information we need during the hiring process, (like a portfolio), your recruiter will work with you to collect it
