Top Resume Tips for Entry Level Candidates
- Be careful about advice from college career services professionals and family members. They often use form resumes or templates created months/years/decades ago. Many career service professional or family members aren’t able to keep up with ever changing job market trends for resume tools and ideas.
- Address must be close to the job. Many candidates use their family home addresses for applying to new jobs. You will often be screened out based on location. Instead, find a friend who lives close and borrow their address and mention to the interviewer that you have plans to move to a given city.
- Work in one internship, or summer job before graduating. Paid or unpaid, this can be a resume booster and share with you what type of job field you want to be in. Websites like internship.com or even a google search are easy ways to apply for internships.
