By On Jul 09, 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 I included it because it makes a persuasive argument that this format is outdated and ineffective.
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.
