Hey there Rayhan,
I’d first check out this page and see if you find anything of value — https://resumegenius.com/resume-samples/internship-resume-example.
The key to writing a resume fresh out of college without work experience is to:
1. Write a killer career objective https://resumegenius.com/how-to-write-a-resume/career-objective-writing-guide
2. Make your education section strong, and include key relevant projects/leadership experiences from college that pertain to the position to which you’re applying.
Good luck with your job search!

Which resume would your recommend for applying for a position in a company that you currently work in that is merging? All staff must re-apply.
September 20, 2017 at 4:33 am
Hi MS. G,
All of these resume templates are perfect for someone in your situation – it just depends on your preference. Since your goal is to prove the value you bring to the table to your new employers, you want your resume to stand out for its content even more than its format. Things that are quantifiable (think numbers, dollar signs, etc.) give your resume weight – check out the following link for some ideas to make the content of your resume stand out: https://resumegenius.com/how-to-write-a-resume/accomplishments-on-resume-quantify-achievements
Good luck, and please feel free to comment again if you have further questions!

October 31, 2017 at 5:19 am
That all depends on if you’re continuing in the same field or you’re going down a new path! I would first recommend reading about the different types of resume formats and seeing if you can decide yourself – https://resumegenius.com/resume-formats. Personally, I’d go with the reverse chronological format – it’s a good choice if you can’t choose one definitively. Good luck on the job hunt!

It has all the characteristics necessary to create a strong, great looking resume.
Hope you have a blast at college!

Hi RG team,
I am currently looking for a part time job so that I may start saving for a apartment, but the resume i have doesn’t seem to work. Is there anything you would suggest for somebody who is looking for a part time job with no working experience? Thankyou -Dylan
January 15, 2018 at 10:57 pm
If you don’t have any work experience you should showcase the skills, qualities, and achievements you have as a student that are transferable to the jobs you are applying for. Our student resume page and examples will show you exactly how to do this: https://resumegenius.com/resume-samples/internship-resume-example
If you follow the guidelines on that page you should be able to craft a resume that will land you a part-time job in no time. Good luck!
January 22, 2018 at 11:05 am
I see none of these templates include references. Is that something I should not include? I typically have included “available upon request”, but maybe I should leave this off entirely….. Thx!
February 7, 2018 at 4:34 am
We are firm believers that including references on a resume is a waste of valuable page real estate. In most cases if an employer wants references they will ask you for them whether you say they are “available upon request” or not.
If you really feel the need to include some references however, we recommend putting them on a separate professional reference page which we have a guide for here: https://resumegenius.com/how-to-write-a-resume/references-on-a-resume
January 23, 2018 at 3:08 am

It allows you to show off your work experience, as well as prominently display the skills you have that are transferable to a job in finance. Good luck!

We actually have a guide created to help stay-at-home moms write a resume – you can check it out here: https://resumegenius.com/resume-samples/stay-at-home-mom-resume-example
Hope it helps you write a great resume!
January 29, 2018 at 3:52 pm
Does every resume need a “career objective?” Could this be omitted on the resume if the objective is included on a required cover letter?
February 8, 2018 at 2:50 am
Every resume absolutely needs some kind of introduction, although it doesn’t necessarily have to be a career objective.
Depending on your level of experience, a professional profile or qualifications summary are both excellent alternatives: https://resumegenius.com/blog/resume-help/how-to-start-a-resume
A career objective (or other intro) is designed to quickly show off your qualifications and hook the hiring manager into reading the rest of your resume. Without one you run the risk of having a resume that is not easily scanned in a few seconds, this can be off putting for a HR that has to get through hundreds of resumes a day.
Hope this helps!

I am applying for a cardiac catheterization technologist part time position at a facility that I previously worked for. I have 30 years of experience in multiple modalities in the cath lab. What is the best type of resume to keep experience, skills; et al to the absolute minimum so that it can be scanned over quickly and is easy for the hiring department and doctors to find what they’re looking for? The types of procedures I have been part of over the last 30 years is quite long, and I have 3 different degrees, however only one is pertinent to this career. Thanks
July 18, 2018 at 12:20 am
It would be quite difficult to condense your 30 years of experience enough to keep your experiences, and skills, etc. to an absolute minimum.
One thing you could try is using a functional resume format: https://resumegenius.com/resume-formats/functional-samples-writing-guide
It’s usually designed for people trying to change careers, but it may serve the purpose you‘re looking for. It will allow you to showcase your skills and experiences that are relevant to your target position in a much more focused and economical way.
April 30, 2018 at 3:03 am
For your situation the Classic template has everything you need. Good luck with your application!
