First be sure and download and review the Jobipedia e-book about putting together an awesome resume! This is such an amazing resource and will guide you through step by step on showcasing your best self. As for not having much work experience, the most important thing is to utilize your projects, assignments, family responsiblities as a way to demonstrate skills by highlighting them in a way that an employer can see them as transferable. For example: if you have worked on a group project, you can highlight that as a way to work in a team, collaborate, meet deadlines, time management, communication skills, and perhaps leadership skills based on your role with the group. The second thing to consider is that many companies will also look for community service and/or extracurricular activities as a way to demonstrate a specific sought after skill set. The most important thing when putting together your resume is to make it your very best self, if you weren't in the room, what must a potential employer know about you? Start there and work in all of the other benefits that you can bring to their company! Good Luck. Remember, everyone is looking for someone that can add value to their company, what are you bringing and make sure they can clearly see that on your resume.
