Social Worker Resume with No Experience

Updated April 22, 2017

Experienced or not, your resume should be a class apart from the rest that a hiring manager will go through. Writing a regular resume is not enough, especially when you are just beginning your career. For you to be able to get in there and impress the hiring manager, you need a little more than mere mediocracy. Remember that mediocre resumes almost never make it beyond the “first” look that hiring managers give to them.
