By strategically using this section of the platform you will:

  1. Save time by having a well documented extracurricular activities section in Cialfo.  Summer programs, scholarships, jobs, and or college all want to know how you spend your time and what you care about. 
  2. Provide a teacher or counselor at your school the information they need to write the best recommendation possible.  By keeping this section up to date, you can provide essential and specific information for your recommenders.
  3. Make it a habit to list your activities, awards, and other involvements in Cialfo.  It can be easy to forget noteworthy events from 9th and 10th grade if you wait until the fall of 12th grade to make a list. 
  4. Cialfo has a Resume function that will take what you add here and information from other sections to generate a downloadable document.  See that article for more details. http://help.cialfo.co/en/articles/3612311-resume-builder
