Do you have education listed including relevant courses and honors/awards, work experience, leadership/activities, and skills sections? I find it hard to believe that if you do, you only have half a page. It sounds to me like you have removed content that you felt wasn't as relevant. Is it possible to keep your duties and add your accomplishments? You can order them by importance, but a resume that is half a page will look odd. You can also structure your resume to space it out a bit without looking unnatural.

I practically cut out everything you just talked about because I thought it was really irrelevant. For example, under leadership I talked about how I was a starter for my cities all star team (got cut out in the semi finals) but it wasn't collegiate level but we competed against teams across the state, this was 2 years ago. Relevant courses, cut all that out, I figured calc 1, macro + micro econ, business 101, stats was just super basic and would just show that I'm not in advanced coursework. Honors/Awards were some things from highschool, receiving a state scholarship. If I kept all of those in it would be full.

Onto work experience is what I think is killing my resume. My internship was super on the surface research + databsing work. I'm having a difficult time spinning into a way that I really helped the firm -- saying something like "Conducted research .... to provide deal flow" but I feel like that's really pushing it, lmao.

EDIT: oh yea, skills section. This one is reallllly killing me, do I come off as a super try hard "Microsoft Excel - VLOOKUP, Pivot Tables" or do I say something like "Financial & Industry Analysis"? I don't want to just say "teamwork, communication" because it's just super dull, maybe I should relate it to work experience and be more specific.

If you still use VLookups I suggest not listing that as a "skill"

Lmao V-Lookup is literally one function, that's like listing "Excel SumProduct" as a skill hahahaha

You surely can say more stuff - you must have had commitments in Extracurriculars that you can speak about.
