We want you to succeed in finding your first job. Here are some tips to help you craft a successful resume. 

1. Match Your Resume to the Position

To help prepare your resume for your first job, you should match your resume to the position that you're applying for. Match it in the sense of the keywords used, and the experience that is required in the job advertisement. 

However, don't lie on your resume. Always be honest, especially when it comes to your skills and experience. If you have qualifications that match what is required for the job, state them clearly on your resume. 

2. Check for Spelling Errors/Mistakes

If your resume is full of spelling errors, or you have mistakes in your formatting, your resume is likely to go to the no pile immediately by an employer. 

Before you send off your resume to any position, double check for spelling errors and any other mistakes that could be hiding on your resume. Get a friend or family member to look over your resume before you start using it to apply to positions. 

A well crafted resume that is void of spelling errors and other mistakes will set you apart from the crowd. 

3. Include All Experience

We know that this is your first job, so you may not have a lot (if any) relevant work experience to note on your resume. And that's okay! Everyone has to start out somewhere. 

Remember to include any kind of experience that you have on your resume. This could include volunteering, any hobbies that you have (if they are relevant to the position at hand), and any school experience/projects that corelate to the position.
