Think about your hobbies, interests, and volunteer work. These can be things you do at home, school, community center, or place of worship.
Think about all the things you know how to do. Can you type? Use a computer and different kinds of software? Do you help do certain things around the house? Speak or understand a language besides English? These are all great things to add to a resume.
