Best Creative Resume Templates for Freshers in MS Word
Once you are out of grad school done with your degree, you are immediately hit by the question: how do I apply for job opportunities? This is where you need to have a fresher resume. A fresher is someone who has recently graduated from high school and has very little or no work experience, while the term resume refers to the document that delivers your professional qualifications (if any), skills, expertise, and extracurricular as well as academic achievements. The format you choose for creating your resume has a lot to do with the first expression you would leave on whoever gets to read them.
Why are resumes vital for a fresher while looking for jobs?
A resume is very likely to reach the hiring officials even before you personally do, and is going to prove itself to be the first introduction that the hiring team gets. Your resume is going to play a very pivotal role in getting you the job, therefore, it is important that you prepare it with a fresh mind and in the most palatable form possible.
What not to miss in a fresher resume?
Complete contact information (name, address, email, telephone, social media accounts, etc.)
A personal statement that you can make impressive with just the right choice of words. It must be in the form of unique statements that express who you are and what are your additional choices, achievements, and accomplishments.
Include your skills next, it must include soft skills such as communication, and conflict management skills, while the hard skills must be related to whatever technical field of education you are from. If there are additional qualities or talents you possess that could get you an edge, don’t forget to mention those! If you have multilingual expertise, this in most cases is a winner. Also, stating your eagerness to learn newer skills will also leave a good impression on the reader.
Listing down your educational bio-data is, obviously, the most important part. By starting with the latest degree, provide all the grades, certifications, extra courses, or summer classes you took. Not to mention, if you were a top achiever at school, you might never want to miss writing that down your fresher resume, explaining how good have you been academically.
List down if any work experiences you have. If you don’t, you might want to list down the community works you have been engaged in, internships you did. This might also include those part-time works you did as well as the collaboration you were a part of during your academic career.
Mistakes to avoid in a resume:
Adding too much or too little information
Informal looking email address
A resume not re-checked.
Remember, that your “last-minute” document that you created at midnight is very probable to leave a wrong impact on the employer. No matter how “immensely” talented and up-to-the-mark you are, your resume is what would determine if the employers want to call you for the interview or not.
