How To Craft The Perfect Resume Experience Section – With Examples!

An All-Star JobGet profile can be achieved in 15 minutes or less!

No Experience? No Problem! 

If you just graduated high school or haven’t had a job before, this section can feel especially tricky. Don’t worry; there’s almost always something we can add. Have you volunteered, babysat, or took care of someone’s pet, or mowed lawns? Here are some things you could add as experience!

  • Volunteer work: list what you did when you volunteered. Did you work with a team or solo? Did you help set up, clean up, prepare food, sell goods – add that as experience!

  • Babysitting or petsitting: even if you weren’t paid or did this for family, it still counts. It’s important to list what you helped with to show that you had responsibilities. These can include keeping a routine feeding schedule, showing up on a set schedule, creating fun activities for kids, keeping notes for the parents or pet owner to reference when they get back, and more!

  • Clubs/Organizations: if you participated in school sports, were a member of Student Government, or indulged your creative side at a community theater, put it on that resume! All of these experiences help you learn new skills and develop your communication abilities.

The rest is up to you! We hope this guide helps you achieve all-star status when completing the experience section of your resume. Best of luck in your job search!
