How to write a resume when you have little to no job experience
Everyone has experience in something. The problem is finding the most important ones to list on your all-important resume. It depends of course on your age and the type of job you are pursuing. Never submit more than a two-page resume, and make sure everything of importance is on the very first page. Employers, very seldom look past the first page. Never waste your time with those flashy covers, unless you are applying for a job requiring artistic work. They are time wasters.
Write down all the things you have done. Have you ever babysat? Can you ask for references from those employers? Computer experience, list programs you can use, windows, office, excel, photo imaging, and scanning. Have you had any work experience, in a supermarket or McDonald's? Include School certificate details. Do you have any credentials with leadership qualities, as a prefect for instance?
Employers need to employ reliable, punctual, and honest, workers. If you have those qualities, list that on your resume. On the bottom of your resume, list your main sporting interests or hobbies.
Returning to the work force
Married with a grown up family, and wish to return to work. Therefore, you have a wealth of experience behind you. You need to list all your relevant experience. Like organization, skills, managing the budgets, volunteer work, or committee work with school P& C. If you use a computer, list your skills of use. Mention language skills if you have any besides English.
CREATING YOUR RESUME: List in the following order
Personal profile Name, Address, Date of Birth, Phone Numbers, email address, marital status, and vehicle licenses
Relevant Work experience - Details of your experience
Education- Schools, Technical colleges, Certificates etc
Skills Computer knowledge, Internet (anything relevant to position)
References- Skilled and personal
The majority of employment agencies have Resume templates on their websites ready for you to add your personal information. When creating it, make sure you only include the relevant information, pertaining to that particular position. It is a very good idea to have two or three resumes. Each directed at different positions.
If applying for a secretarial position, do not add that you babysat for Mrs. Jones for two years. Likewise, if you want a cleaning job, do not mention that you were a receptionist. If you do, they will say you are overqualified, and out of consideration. Send copies of references that refer to the position you are applying for, no others.
You list the specific details required on resumes these get you to the interview. Once there, you offer the more detailed information and references. Remember, organization skills, honesty, and punctuality go a long way to obtaining and keeping your job.
