TIPS FOR WRITING AN ENTRY-LEVEL RESUME

Just because you don't have existing skills or experience in a traditional work setting doesn't mean you can't craft a convincing resume. 

Here are some helpful tips and articles to help you...

  • GIVE YOURSELF A PROFESSIONAL TITLE (BRAND)
    • Create your own brand that portrays you as a professional with valuable expertise
    • i.e. "Susan Williams - Administrative Assistant" or "Charles Escobar - Customer Service Specialist"
    • Set yourself apart from other entry-level applicants
  • FOCUS ON YOUR EDUCATION AND SKILLS
    • What can you do well that this job requires? 
    • What will be useful to the hiring company?
    • What have you done in school and what have you studied that has prepared you for this job?
  • TAKE INVENTORY OF YOUR ACTIVITIES AND ACHIEVEMENTS
    • Narrow the list to include most relevant to this job
  • INTERNSHIPS, EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES, OR VOLUNTEER WORK
    • Internships and career-related experience is very important
  • TECHNICAL DETAILS
    • Make sure there are no punctuation, grammatical, spelling or other errors
    • Ensure your email address is professional or appropriate in nature
