If you have little work experience, highlighting your education is a great way to showcase your strengths, interests, and life.
Some things you may want to include in the education section of your resume:
List all courses that will emphasize skills that will be useful for this job. This may include courses focused on technical skills such as economics, mathematics or computer science. But don’t forget the importance of courses like English or writing that can demonstrate communication or other interpersonal skills. Look at job descriptions to see what skills are needed for your area of interest.
Grade Point Average and Awards:
A strong grade point average (GPA) can show that you are willing to work hard and that you are capable of your career. Professionals recommend listing if your GPA is higher. If you have received any academic Awards, it is a good idea to list them as well.
Academic or Live Projects:
If you have completed some live projects in the class related to the job you are applying for, list them and briefly describe them. If there is more than one, it can be its own section.
Online Courses & Certifications:
If you have completed extracurricular activities or received professional certifications, list them in the Education section.
Add Relevant Experience:
When you first start putting together your resume, you may feel like you don’t have any relevant experience to apply to. But a quick peek into your life can reveal some experiences that highlight your skills, interests, and character—all things that are important to potential employers.
You can add the following to the “Relevant Experience” section:
Volunteerism reflects your community involvement, skills, and willingness to work with others and your interests. This can even get you experience in a related field.
Maybe you work part-time while you go to school, take care of the kids, or help your parents with a small business. If you’re applying for your first full-time job, don’t hesitate to include this. Part-time work can demonstrate your ability and experience working with key skills such as customer service.
Whether you play sports, be a member of a cultural club, or participate in student council, extracurricular activities can show that you are willing to explore your interests, develop new skills, and work in a team. Don’t forget to include any leadership positions you have participated in this activity.
Add Your Skills:
Even if you have no formal work experience, you have skills that will be useful in this field. Look at several job descriptions in your area of interest to see what skills are most often needed.
The skills you should choose from your list may depend on the job, but may include:
- Microsoft Office
- Social media Management
- Foreign language if any
Add some summary:
A resume summary is a summary of your experience and skills. Usually one or three sentences long, the summary gives the recruiter a quick sense of your confidence and assets as an employee.
Don’t forget to highlight the qualities and skills that are relevant to the job you are applying for. You can also include a statement about your goals.
What kind of job you are looking for? Here are two examples:
Recent college major in Computer Science and Communication. Have strong skills in Python, C++, and public speaking for full-time engineering opportunities.
Students who are interested and hardworking and passionate about working with children are honoured and have a year of fostering experience.
Use a good template:
Take the stress out of creating your own template by using one of the many CV / Resume templates you can find online.
Design any template that suits your needs and preferences. Applications such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs can be useful here. Visit your local public library. If you’re a student, your college library probably has resources you can use.
