If you are looking for a template to create your first job resume, you’ve found it. The first job resume template from our Rising Talent Collection is exactly what you’ve been searching for.
Even if you have little or no employment experience, your resume can be impressive and provide you with a competitive edge for the jobs you most want. Your qualifications, knowledge, and ability to add value to an employer don’t just have to come from past employment. For example, you develop skills and knowledge in volunteer jobs, extracurricular activities, academic projects, internships, and work-study or job shadowing experiences.
This first job resume template includes many tips and prompts to help you identify the right information to include on your first job resume.
The format of this resume template stands out and captures the eyes of recruiters and hiring managers. Not only is it ATS-friendly, it is eye-appealing too. The two-column resume format can cause problems with ATS when it is not properly designed. All Distinctive Resume Templates have been created by an award-winning professional resume writer with more than 25 years of experience, so you can be sure that your resume design is ATS compatible while meeting all other modern resume best practices and standards.
The resume format includes lots of space to include links to professional social media accounts. You should never include links to accounts that you use for personal purposes. But, building a strong professional presence online can give you a real competitive edge as a young professional. If you have done this and your social media accounts are used for professional purposes only, you may wish to include them on your resume.
There are a few advantages to including social media links on your resume. First, it allows potential employers to learn more about you as a person and get a better sense of your interests and values. If your social media accounts are professional and showcase your skills and experience in a positive light, including the links can only help your chances of landing an interview.
In addition, some recruiters and hiring managers actively search for candidates on social media, so if your profiles are public and easily accessible, you may be more likely to catch their eye. Finally, including social media links gives you an opportunity to demonstrate your tech-savviness, which can be beneficial in some industries.
The Rising Talent Collection includes an optional bundle of matching job searching documents, including a resume addendum template with prompts for additional qualifications and skills, a professional biography template, references sheet template, and even a cover letter template.
