By On Jul 11, 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.
In lieu of job training, your skills, talents and strong personal traits are what you have to sell to a potential employer. Dedicate a section of your resume to list computer skills and other job-related talents such as special writing abilities or languages spoken. Also include strong personal traits such as being detailed and organized or being a good listener and a fast learner.
I would recommend reading through all of these links and giving the student resume examples a glance for good measure. They contain excellent strategies for how to format the education section of your resume to maximize displaying your academic achievements and academic activities in a way that is relevant to your potential employer. The first link tells students of all types (high school, college, professional) how to write the education section. The second link gives strategies for displaying non-career related experience on your resume. The final link gives examples you can look through to help you visually understand how your education section can look.
