Resume writing is fun – as much fun as having a nail pulled out. This is especially true if you are fresh out of college and have no professional experience to boast of. So what happens when you have written all that you can, that is your education and a couple of burger-flipping jobs? You see a white space, staring at you that you do not know what to do about.
To be perfectly fair, you will not be expected to write a three-page long resume for an entry level beauty advisor job. A single-page resume will suffice. But to fill that one page, you have to have some relevant content to put in it. And that is where your creative skills come in. Since you cannot put in just anything, you have to think of pertinent information to use. If you have had any past experiences such as internships or volunteer work, do mention them. But make sure that they are in sync with what the employer is looking for. Do not just place information for the sake of it. Whatever you write in your beauty advisor resume has to work for you as a candidate.
Using the company’s language is what will get you close to an employer. Incorporating words and phrases from the job listing is a great way of catching a prospective employer’s eye. If the company is looking for a “team player”, mention that you “thrive in a team environment”. And so on.
