Entry level resumes are in a league of their own. They have to be treated differently than a regular one would be. In a sense, an entry level resume is actually more difficult to write than one that can show off some experience. While writing the latter, you have the benefit of writing a lot. And you have dedicated sections – many of them – to help you decide what to place under them. In an entry level one, you have a few heads to put everything under and that becomes challenging.
However, entry level resumes can be made to seem as if they are extremely professionally written. The writer has to put in a lot of effort though. While it is true that most entry level resumes possess objectives, it is alright to replace them with summaries of qualifications. By doing so, you will be able to give your resume a professional image even if it seems like eyewash.
But in actuality, it is not really eyewash if the information that you put in is believable. After all, as an entry level candidate, how much can you show off? Plenty! You have to look for possibilities to make your resume rock the hiring manager’s world. And this can only be done if it exudes confidence.
Enough talk! Let’s have some action! Take a look at the following entry level resume sample for a merchandiser position:
