Writing a resume is easy if you have tons of experience to show off. If you have none or limited experience, the job becomes a bit dodgy. That is because lack of knowledge automatically translates into lack of information on a resume.
The result is a short and awkward looking resume. Does that make you unhappy?
It shouldn’t. If you are applying for an entry-level position or an internship, the hiring manager will not expect to see a 5-page long resume coming from you. A single page will do.
The point here is to write a resume that speaks volumes about you as a possible candidate for a job and not merely volumes. Shorter resumes are quite welcomed these days, as more and more candidates are resorting to writing ones that have no end in sight.
Long resumes are not necessarily considered good ones. Now, does that make you more comfortable with your resume writing efforts? Great! Read on!
A resume that you write for a position for which you have had no experience is simple. Put in all your academic information and write down your skills. Any related volunteer work information can be placed in an entry-level resume as well. It is easy.
