Academic achievement and skills
When you lack the experience, it’s good to show other strengths you have, in order to generate interest in the interviewer. Showing yourself off in the proper way, as an active person that will add something valuable to the company, is the first step. Your academic information is fundamental. You need to detail the University or college you’re currently attending, your major and minor, how many subjects you have passed and what’s your average score on them. Don’t forget to include any extra-curricular subjects you’re taking. Courses, seminars and workshops should also be mentioned, with the necessary explanations about their objectives and contents.
Voluntary work and internships, everything is experience
If you’ve served as a volunteer, you should also include it in your résumé, as it will not only show your experience (even if it’s not in the work area in which you’re trying to get a job), but it will also allow your employer to get to know a bit more about your personality. Even though we don’t consider it in many ocassions, working as a volunteer is significant when it comes to filling out your CV, and companies pay special attention to this matter, since it allows them to know which are your social concerns and your values as a person.
Internships add up, even if they were short or unremunerated. Describe what was your position and which were your tasks. Besides, it’s always good to include all of those personal non-profit projects you probably have. If you’ve been part of some kind of entrepreneur attempt, no matter how small it was, explain what you did and what you achieved with it.
Languages and other knowledge that also help
In the current job market, extra knowledge such as languages or computing are essential, so don’t forget to highlight them. Don’t lie or exaggerate, just show your real level on each case. Having an excellent English level or computer knowledge is a big advantage, so if you haven’t worked before, focus on improving your knowledge on these fields. Getting some international certification of your level of a foreign language complements really well your résumé.
Where to look
Once you’re finished with your CV, you need to find your desired job. First, you need to determine in which areas and positions you’d like to work. If you’ve already decided on that, start looking! Offer your services spontaneously to companies that could be interested, upload your CV on the net or send it to job consultants or employment agencies. The more résumés you have running around, the more chances you’ll have!
