One of my greatest challenges is when I encounter a job searcher or student that doesn’t have much on their resume. They’ve spent their time going to work or getting through school and have paid little attention to developing other aspects of their lives. Employers want people with skills, knowledge and abilities. Work experience and school are not the only opportunities to enrich yourself in these areas. Get involved in local charities or organizations. Volunteer and become members of professional groups. You can add value to your self and you’ll have something interesting information to include in your resume. Spend some time looking at your resume. What does it reflect? What can you add to make yourself more appealing? Is it a new skill, professional membership, language proficiency, training course, challenging project or something else? If you find that you are lacking in areas to add to your resume that means you need to get work. It is really difficult to edit or create a resume if you have limited information to add. Get something to add to your resume. This will make you more valuable and ultimately lead to interesting discussions during the interview.
