Students looking to break into the workforce often lack the most powerful weapon available to job seekers: work experience.

Even internships, summer positions, and entry-level roles seem to demand a certain level of practical experience. And if a company doesn’t demand an established work history in its job posting, chances are there are still going to be experienced applicants vying for the position. So how can unseasoned students compete for these roles?

The good news is that work experience isn’t everything when it comes to hiring decisions. It matters a lot for people further along in their careers, but recruiters are used to evaluating candidates with little to no experience for low-level positions.

The other bit of good news is that you probably have more experience than you think. You just need to uncover it. Seemingly trivial or unrelated experiences can be assets that enhance your job prospects.

Job seekers without a rich work history to draw upon must rely on these elements when crafting their resumes. While it may seem that they are at a disadvantage, by offering a strong initial statement, being innovative with content and structure, and tying everything together with a professional resume layout, inexperienced applicants can still dazzle recruiters.

The following infographic written together with recruiters and employers will guide students/graduates and those without work experience to create a professional resume:
