April 16, 2010, Newsletter Issue #26: Tips for Landing Entry Level Jobs

Tip of the Week

Entry level jobs are not always synonymous with no education. Most professions require college degrees, even for jobs at entry level. In many cases the term “entry level” is a misnomer, leading job hunters to believe that no prior experience or education is needed, when in many cases it’s required.

Still, it’s possible to get your foot in the door if you take certain steps. A well-written resume accentuating your past experience and abilities can go a long way in downplaying any educational deficits you may have. And although the lack of educational credentials could be the determining factor in whether or not you land a job, an expertly crafted resume could be enough to tip the scales in your favor.

Additionally, allying yourself with a professional recruiter could make an enormous difference. Many companies are willing to take chances on job candidates if they’ve had positive experiences with their pool of employees.
