How do I create a resume if I've never had a job?
With regards to resumes and CV's, if you've never had a job that does not mean that you don't have experience. A lot of times people, particularly my college students, will be very, very concerned about “How am I going to get a job if I don't have any experience?” However, when we sit down and talk about it, they've been involved in athletics on campus, in a sorority, different types of committees, volunteer work, internships, and so you'd probably be amazed if you really sat down and went through the last five years of your life and listed everything you've done. I'm sure you'd find that you probably have more than a one-page resume, probably a two-page resume. So, you can certainly maximize any type of volunteer work that you've done, even if you've been babysitting, or providing other types of child care. That counts as legitimate employment and legitimate experience. So, you might want to get with a professional resume writer who can help translate your life experience into an actual resume for a job.
