No Experience For That Amazing Career

July 19th, 2009

Finding a new job can be hard work but there are lots of jobs out there and some of the best are at Tesco Job Vacancies.

Your CV is usually your first method of introduction to a company so it is vital that you get the detailing correct. It should provide some personal details about you, some educational details such as your qualifications, both from school/college and also from any professional courses you have attended. It should also include some details about your previous work experience, including the positions you held and the duties involved in the role.Many people find writing their CV difficult, it is hard to know what is relevant and what is not, how much information you should include without wanting to be too vague. One of the most difficult times to write a CV is when you have just left college or university and perhaps don’t have the experience in order to fill out those vital areas which tell a potential employer about the work or training/qualifications you haven’t even started yet.

If you find yourself lacking the appropriate qualifications when seeking a new career, be sure to emphasize any experience and achievements that you do possess that would be considered beneficial to the new job. No matter the type of business, you should highlight this under your experiences, for instance, if you’ve managed people.

When you leave college or university it is often difficult to complete the part of your CV or application form which asks for your work experience. After all, you have been study for the past few years, not working. However, this is an area you can easily overcome by looking at what you have achieved over the previous years whilst studying. You can detail any awards you may have achieved, you may have completed projects whilst you were studying which could highlight keen planning or time management skills in order to meet deadlines. If you have had or still have any active involvement in any clubs or organisations, details of this can be included. A simple paid membership to an organisation won’t quite be enough, no matter how worthwhile your donation is, but if you get involved in the running of events for the organisation then this may show skills that are similar to those you will use when working. Whatever awards, achievements or memberships you have, it is also beneficial if you can somehow relate them to the job you are applying for or to the career objectives you have.

Instead of listing any experience, title the section “Pre-professional Experience” and divide it into categories applicable to your career objective. You might say that you spent a whole summer working at a supermarket, but it would be an even better idea to explain your customer service responsibilities under a subheading entitled “Customer Relations.”
