Entry Level Resume

Prime-Resume offers customized resume writing services that can help a student and experienced managers achieve career goals. But because the resume of a qualified expert is somewhat different from the one developed for a soon-to-be-graduate our company offers services by different resume writing levels: entry, professional, executive, military, federal, and career change. In our blog section, we have decided to dedicate several blog posts to the difference between those levels as well as help understand how to be more effective in resume writing.

Entry-Level Resume Writing Tips

This type of resume assumes you don't have work experience and the position you are applying is an entry-level position (i.e. not the one of the managerial kind). Most graduates are in the business of writing an entry level resume when they are looking for a job after university or college. It is not easy to develop effective application documents because there is no much information to present for potential employers. This is one of the most frequently asked questions among students: what do I include in my CV apart from educational credentials? First and foremost we would encourage students to get a little bit more detailed when you list your educational credentials.

Apart from the name of the educational establishment and degree obtained, our professionals recommend including relevant coursework and GPA. When we say relevant we mean not what seems to appropriate for you, but what relates to the job opening you are applying for. Any distinctions or awards that have relation to the position can also have a positive effect on a potential employer. "What's next? There is still so much blank space on my resume?", most job seekers ask after they are done with the education section. It is a good idea to continue with training. If you have no training to include because you haven't undergone any training we recommend finding such opportunities. Today it is not a difficult thing to find training or seminars for professional development. Attend classes and seminars which would be beneficial in your future career and include those onto your CV.

Also, finding internship opportunities can give you another boost - if you work as an intern within a reputable company you can obtain vital experience and skills. Students have to understand that in order to get a good job the bachelor of science degree is not enough. The fact that you graduated means nothing to a potential employer. Therefore, in order to stand out among the crowd of applicants, you have to demonstrate that you can bring value to the company. We recommend including any evidence of success during your study years (awards, honors, etc.)

Thank you for the wonderful resume and layout. I am pleased with the work. My job search will kick into high gear in December so I will probably be using cover letter service then. Please add the gaduation date from Excel Technical college as 1998. Thank you so much.

Well written and it doesn't concentrate on the foodservice manager, a field I do not want to work in.

I wanted to tell you that my resume now looks very, very impressive. It’s perfection itself!

I wanted to let you know that I got the resume the very day you sent it out. My interview was scheduled for Tuesday and that same night, by 10 pm, I got an email from the principal informing me that the position was mine. The result was superquick!!! The job’s at the school I really wanted to be a part of. Thanks a million!!!

Both the cover letter and the resume are excellent! They definitely won’t be the reason I fail to find the right job. You rock!
