Resume for an interview

I’ve never personally had a job a paying job before, all the “jobs” that I took while in high school were volunteer service or unpaid interning type of experiences.

So the point I’m trying to get at is that since I’ve never had a official job quite yet. Am I supposed to come up with a resume to bring with me to the interview even though all my work experiences were either non-paying or volunteering?

Hello Trey! My advice is to create a resume that showcases your volunteer work with the duration you spent during that time. In addition, adding skills you hold will showcase you as a potential employee. Employees are assets to a company so regardless of your lack of employment is not to say you can’t bring anything to the table. A great resume builder is or resume It saves time and can show you flaws in your resume to build upon. Good Luck! Nichol


Dr. Gena Yuvette D.

Hi, agree with Nichol. Consider your non-paid, volunteer work as experience. Leverage everything you learned from those opportunities and create a winning resume. You don't have to say that they were non-paid or volunteer. All an employer wants to know is what did you do. Talk about your duties, what you were responsible for or any projects that you lead or were a part of.
