Entry level job seekers face the dilemma of having no practical or relevant experience to prove their capabilities. Though they are interested in gaining experience, but filling in for the experience section in the resume seems to be a fairly difficult task. Following are some tips in this regard:
• Demonstrate your skills: Past experience is not the only way to communicate your potential. You can include details of an educational project of volunteer work to reflect what you are capable of.
• Start with a Profile: Modern resumes are topped with powerful profiles/summaries. Being a fresh job seeker, it is more appropriate to start your resume with a profile or summary.
• Qualifications: It is advisable to enlist your most relevant qualifications which will enable you to perform a Physical Therapy Aide job efficiently. If you possess any specialized qualifications, licensure or certifications, these should be written in a separate section for maximum optimization.
