This client was fresh out of high school, with little work experience to comment upon.
He wanted to apply to a college, he wasn’t sure which college was his preferred choice, nor did he really have an understanding of what course it as that he wanted to take. He did, however, want a resume that looked good. The problem he was facing that there was very little to write on the resume due to his little experience, traditionally on resume’s you will note your educational qualifications and your results only, along with any work experience you have gained. This client hadn’t any work experience which meant that the resume looked very blank. What I did for him was to design a resume that looked professional and like a lot of work had been put into it, when it actuality I used a template I have downloaded and simply amended it to give it the wow factor.
Then I added a personal objective section, in which I explained that the gentleman was fresh out of school, had little work experience due to applying all of his time and energy into his studies. I then followed this up with a note that the gentleman would like to continue his studies further so that he could become an expert in his chosen field. I also made sure I included any other details about the gentleman that may make him more appealing on paper, such as additional languages, hobbies and skills, for example. This resulted in a full and professional looking resume and the client was very happy, informing me that he would come back to me to request a statement of purpose.
