The quantity of information that you provide in an entry level resume can be compromised on – the quality cannot. Connecting what you have to what an employer wants at this stage may not be too easy, but it is critical to understand that in all your communications with the employer (resumes, cover letters or interviews), the responsibility of creating a match rests with you.
With the resume, it is up to you to convince the employer that you are worthy of an interview. Your academic and work experience (internships or apprenticeships for an entry level resume) need to demonstrate your potential to be a good fit for the job. And to achieve this, you must research the organization and positions so that you have a clear idea of what to showcase. Remember that first impressions matter. Take a look at your resume before you send it off – what does it say? Make sure that any negativity or chances of a negative impact are gotten rid of before you declare it complete. Focusing on information that is relevant to the job and the employer and keeping your resume short, is the key to getting you to the next stage.
