Things to keep in mind as you’re using this first job resume sample:

  • Apply for the right jobs. Here, you want to avoid applying for jobs that require particular candidates to have certifications or degrees you may not have
  • Take your time reading job descriptions. You also want to read each job position you apply for very carefully. Get a full understanding of the tasks required for the job position.
  • Read up as much as possible on the employer & industry. Especially make sure you get a general understanding of the employer’s short and long-term business goals.
  • Make up for lost ground. To make up for lack of experience, your first job resume must make up for this disadvantage by showing a well-understood level of knowledge for the job at hand – proving you’ve read & fully understood the job description, tasks, and showing where your skills intersect with these tasks.
  • Submit your resume to databases. Don’t forget to submit your resume to as many important CV databases as possible – which may just mean ensuring your resume is filled and active on the particular platform (e.g. Monster.com, d.Diversified Employment Services, Indeed, etc.).
  • Utilize staffing companies to aid in your job search. Staffing companies & employment agencies can help guide you towards the right career choices and help prep and aid you in resume writing, interview skills, and more. Contact us if you’re interested in a job placement around SE Michigan.
