Fresher Resume Sample

This Fresher Resume Sample is designed to highlight the skills and abilities of recent graduates. One thing most of you share is a lack of directly related job experience. This is a major catch-22 obstacle as you first have to be given the opportunity to perform a job before you can begin to build experience. Follow this Fresher Resume Sample to build a winning resume!

A positive way to approach this situation is by first recognizing that you have in fact developed  meaningful experience -indirectly- performing related roles. The trick to keep in mind is that you must clearly articulate how your experience -even if gained in an unpaid capacity - have allowed you to gain the combined experience necessary to successfully perform a specific job.

It's all in the presentation:

On paper, a nice way for a fresher to sell themselves is by constructing what is known as a functional resume. A functional resume highlights your functionality - your employable skills and abilities - that you have acquired through experience -formal or not. Your specific past employment history and your roles are relegated towards the end of the resume.

As an example you may be a fantastic typist, writer and editor. In college, perhaps you had a lot of thankful friends that recognized you for your abilities and they often asked of your help and input to write papers and essays. This is an employable skill. -A functional resume highlights that skill regardless of where you gained it. 

Another example would be function skills you gained by contributing to a faculty research project. You may have gained interviewing, fact finding and valuable project management skills along the way.
