Will potential employers be interested in any of my achievements from 8th grade, as someone who attends high school?

I am sixteen years old.

In eighth grade, I received highest honors in mathematics and I was a member of the National Honor Society.

I am applying to be a cashier.

  • I don;t even know an employer that would hire a youngster as cashier unknown, let alone one that would be interested in 2 year old schoolwork – Kilisi Jun 2 '18 at 0:19

    @Kilisi I worked at a fast-food place, including manning the cash register, when I was 16. This was pretty common among my cohort. – Monica Cellio Jun 3 '18 at 20:13

Yes, put it on your resume.

Here are three questions do decide should you put something on your resume?

  1. Will this information help give the message that you are a good fit for the job?

Possibly. Some store managers may decide to win such a reward you a hard worker or that you are reliable or that you are smart. If they don’t think any of these I still think it doesn’t hurt.

  1. Is this something you are willing to talk about if asked?

I hope so.

  1. Will this make your resume too long?

For a 16-year-old, I doubt it.
