Some employers may ask you for a resume. If you've never written a resume before, it can be difficult to know where to begin especially if you don't have any formal work experience. Including jobs like babysitting, pet sitting, lawn work and volunteering is a good place to start. The purpose of a resume is to list your work experience, but it is also a short summary of who you are and what you have accomplished so far. Below is a sample resume to guide you or check out the online Resume Builder and Video Training from our partner Teen Job Prep. Receive 15% off with the code TEENJOBSNJ!
