Building an entry level resume for the field of finance is a complicated task. Since you do not have much to offer in terms of experience, a skills and qualifications dominated resume will help you landing an interview.

Although objective statements are becoming obsolete rapidly, experts recommend entry level resumes should begin with a target objective. Mention your technical skills separately and explicitly, in an optimized manner to create a better impression.
