Typically, if you do not have experience and are applying for a first time job, you do not write a professional profile in your resume. A profile is usually written on bank teller resumes that can boast of experience. However, there is no rule stating that you cannot write a profile if you are an entry level applicant who has no practical experience in hand. This discrimination is based entirely on our own concepts of how you want to portray yourself.
In the rare event that you decide that you want to write a professional profile instead of a bank teller resume objective, you need to follow some rules. Since you are applying for a job for which you may be skilled, you can build up on your qualifications and ignore the lack of experience. Believe it, if you word your profile properly, lack of experience will not even show!
Writing resume profiles is somewhat tricky though. You have to put in a lot of information in a few sentences and make them appear true. Farfetched statements can be off-putting – at the entry level, you do not have much leeway where exaggeration is concerned – so stick to the truth. In the three sentences allotted to you, you should be able to define your goals and strengths and how you can use them to benefit the company. Yes, resume profiles are much like objectives albeit a tad more profound.
