By On Sep 02, 2019 Resume
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.
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.
