Without any experience, it's going to be highly unlikely for her to create a strong, solid resume. Her best option is to create a functional resume that highlights her recent education, strongest skills, and any volunteer work she may have done. Even with all that, her resume will still fall short unfortunately. Go to Google and type in "functional resume" to see what it is I am referring to.

All the big job boards (Monster, Hotjobs, Careerbuilder) have really solid guides & samples. You can also check Microsoft Templates. And, yes, she will need a "Functional" resume. Finally, if her school has a Career Center they will help her with this and interview skills. Good luck!

suresh Singer... is that your real resume? If it is, why are you trying to get a job when you're 10? And it's not a good idea AT ALL to post all of that stuff on the internet.

See a basic example here: http://www.freejobsearchhelp.com/example... (Shrink your browser window to page width to make it look a little better) Or buy a good resume book at your local book store. Good luck!

Even if it is a General application you will be best off if you adjust the Objective for each job being applied to. (Definitely worth the extra five minutes or so) The Objective should be written in two parts. One is qualifying information and the other is the name of the position being applied to. For example: "Seeking a career in the hospitality industry to further develop my customer service skills". Avoid overly generic statements such as to "gain as much experience as I can", this doesn't really tell the employer much. Here is a database of professionally formatted resume examples. You can find your industry and copy the style found on the sample. http://resumecompanion.com/resume/pages/...
