By On Mar 31, 2019 Resume
Even without training, a well-written resume can mean the difference between getting your first job or going home to read more want ads. Power up your employment search with a top-notch, one-page beginners resume that lists the education, life experience and skills you have to offer as a prospective employee. Without experience, your education is the next best thing to on-the-job or formal job training. List high school, college or other job-related coursework you have completed at the top of your resume. If you are currently in school, list your education or certifications as "pending completion." Be sure to include awards or special achievements and your GPA only if it is 3.0 or higher.
The first two links are similar, though they cover the material differently. The first link gives a basic rundown of the different types of resumes, and why you should use a particular format. The second link does the same, but also gives examples of what each resume will look like. The final link makes an argument against using the functional format entirely. I included it because it makes a persuasive argument that this format is outdated and ineffective.
Life is full of experiences -- it’s just that we don’t get paid for some of them. Include volunteer and community projects you’ve worked on over the years. Team experience is also valuable to demonstrate you can work well with others. Be sure to highlight any leadership positions you’ve had with your experiences. If you don’t have any experience to offer yet, volunteer now at your church or community center to add it to your resume as a current activity. Not only will you gain valuable experience, you may also meet prospective employers within those networks.
