By On Jul 19, 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.
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.
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.
