The Misty Dawn resume template for young professionals is structured to help graduating students and other young professionals with little employment experience make a great first impression for even the most competitive jobs.
Many times young professionals with little employment experience don't know what to include on a resume. As a result, they try applying for jobs with a very unappealing resume with sparse information that does nothing to "sell" the employer why hiring them would be a good investment. This is a very poor strategy. While a young professional may land a job eventually with such a poor resume, a little effort in developing a stronger resume can have a dramatic positive impact.
Not only will a good resume template for young professionals give the job hunter a competitive edge and speed a job search, but it will also often result in a job offer at a higher salary. While a $5000 a year (for example) increase in a starting salary might not seem like much, realize that your last salary will usually play a role in the raises you receive as your career progresses. In other words, that $5000/year compounds. A young professional just getting started in a career may have at least 40 years of employment ahead of them. $5000 multiplied by 40 years = $200,000. Imagine! Just a little extra effort developing your resume as a young professional could be worth $200,000 or more in lifetime earnings.
Put in those terms, our Misty Dawn resume template for young professionals is a bargain! It will help young professionals stand out and be more competitive for the most lucrative and desirable positions.
