Applying for a job is a matter of selling yourself, nobody else will.
You are competing against many other applicants, and first impressions do count. The résumé and your covering letter will not only create this first impression, but tells them how well you fit their job.
A first time job applicant does have some difficulty in marketing their experience, however this can be, to a certain extent, overcome by detailing committee positions, sports teams, school activities and part time or casual jobs. Committee positions show a commitment to help and achieve; sports team show a team spirit and able to work with others; and part time or casual work does provide you with experience. It is important that you think about what you did at school or TAFE and how this can be interpreted into meaningful attributes in the work place. A treasurer on a committee shows attributes of wanting to help others and financial responsibility.
