Resume Template - Early School Leaver with No (Paid) Work Experience
(A Youth Central Resume Template)
Use this resume template if you:
Have left school without completing VCE
Don't have any formal (paid) work experience
If you've left school before completing year 12 and are looking for full-time work, the types of jobs you'll be applying for will be very popular. There will be a large number of other candidates, which means your resume needs to effectively sell you and help you to stand out.
This template has been designed to focus on:
General skills that help you work in a team and as part of an organisation
Personal attributes that will help you learn to work in a professional work environment
Key strengths and contributions that show you are a stand-out applicant
Work experience or volunteer work that demonstrates your strengths and attributes
A written testimonial that shows you are capable of transitioning into the world of work
Other things that you can put on your resume include:
Any sporting or community club participation (if relevant)
Any hobbies or interests that are relevant to the job or demonstrate your professional experience
This template is two pages long, but with your level of experience you may find your resume ends up being one page. This is more than acceptable when you're just starting out in the world of work.
If your resume ends up being three pages long
, you're probably providing too much information - try cutting some things out and sticking to two pages maximum.
If you have any questions about this resume template please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
