I've never had a job before. Where do I start?

How exciting. Creating a resume is the best place to start. This can be hard if you’ve never had a job but we’re sure you’ve got skills hidden there somewhere.

What about that time that you helped in the canteen at sport? Or have you done babysitting recently?

How to show this on your resume can be hard. If you work backward it helps. So, you babysat two kids for an afternoon. This then involved you managing the safety of two kids, while balancing their food intake and ensuring the house is kept clean and tidy. What does that show? That you’re able to multitask and deal with competing priorities. Both are skills that are valued in your first job.
