Resumes built for entry level positions work just as well as those written for experienced ones. The trick is in how a resume is written and not who writes it or in what situation. It is true that entry level resumes need a little more work than their experienced counterparts. Not because they are in any way less but because lack of experience can make us feel a bit intimidated. We end up writing content that is fluffy but hollow. Hence, the need for extra care!
Lack of experience should not pull us down. After all, even the best of us must have written an entry level resume at some point in our lives. How else would we have started out in the job world? When a hiring manager looks at an entry level resume, he is aware of its status in the job market and he will not disregard it only because the applicant hasn’t worked before. And this is contrary to what most of us believe in which is why we write nervously and this nervousness shows up in the resume.
Keep your head high when you write an entry level resume. There is really no need to be afraid if you have the skills that the employer is looking for. Do a self-check a few times and begin writing! Here is an entry level resume sample for a food service assistant to help you along:
