An undergraduate degree is a great first step to getting a job, but it’s not always easy to present your skills and qualifications in your resume that gets a hiring manager’s attention. Here’s how you can make sure your undergraduate work really shines in your student resume.
It’s generally a good idea to include a cover letter for any job application. It helps you provide more details about your background and why you think you’re a good fit for the job, and it’s also your opportunity to ask for a job interview. You can use the ResumeHelp cover letter builder to create your cover letter even if you’re not great at writing cover letters.
If you’re short on professional experience, incorporate any academic, internship and volunteer experiences that feature skills or knowledge that are pertinent to the job opportunity. For extra help organizing your experience, use the ResumeHelp resume builder.
The best thing you can do to make sure your resume works for each job is to look for resume keywords in the job description, such as important skills and requirements the employer wants. Using these keywords in your resume makes you more likely to get through to the next level. With resume keywords, you can always present the best side of yourself to the hiring manager.
