By On Jul 11, 2019 Resume
When considering a job candidate without working experience, employers are looking for other ways to validate character and abilities. Always include personal references at the bottom of your resume. If possible, select references who know you well and have a background in the job you’re seeking. Prep your references for potential contact by reminding them of your education, experiences, skills and traits. Then ask them to write a letter of recommendation to accompany your resume.
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 I included it because it makes a persuasive argument that this format is outdated and ineffective.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.
