There is no confusion worse than to submit a resume when you have never written one!
Whenever you are faced with such a situation, think of this – even Steve Jobs must have been in this position at some point in his life!
But see where life took him? Feel better? Great! Let’s move on!
What makes a resume worth an employer’s time?
Consistency, flow, and relevance. If you have these three in check, you are a definite winner.
Not having written a resume before probably means that your first time attempt at writing one, may not be that great. Not an issue – write it as well as you can the first time but do not send it.
Read and reread it to see what it lacks. Take a few days to ponder what changes you can make to it.
Make the changes and read and reread.
When you feel that there are no more changes that you can do, your resume is ready for the employer’s eyes! Send it in!
If you take care of what you write in the content of the resume, you will always win interviews.
And contrary to popular belief that resumes that do not sport an experience section are losers, the experience is not necessary at the entry level.
Take a look at the following resume sample to see what we mean:
