You can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job, but there are still some things you can include on your CV rather than leaving it blank. Show off your quality education, relevant internships, soft and hard skills, and projects to help snag a killer job.

If you find yourself in the situation where you have little to no work experience but are obviously very qualified, why not re-assess your resume and emphasize your education, skills, and experience from school and internships. Don't get discouraged, hiring managers can see what a strong candidate you are!

If you have no experience, don't let your CV go to waste. Creating a killer no-experience CV isn't that hard, as long as you know what to include.

  • To start with, the right keywords related to your career field should be included.
  • Then, write down all of the soft skills you have learned and acquired over the years, such as communication, problem solving and time management or adaptability and flexibility.
  • Then, talk about the extra-curricular activities you have been involved in at school or elsewhere.

It is useful to write about these experiences in an impressive way – for example by showing how each experience has provided you with specific soft or hard skills that are needed in your niche. With all this information on your novice CV, it definitely won't hurt to apply for jobs for which you wouldn't normally qualify!
