Building your first CV can seem like an overwhelming task, especially if you do not have much or any work experience. The common thought is that you need work experience on your resume to get a job, but you need a job to get that work experience. It seems like a catch twenty-two situation. However, if you have completed volunteer work all is not lost. For first time CV creators, volunteer work can be the key to highlighting your experience and qualifications. Most employers understand that recent graduates have not had much time to gain paid work experience.

If you have volunteered throughout your high school or college years (or both), you could actually have amassed more work experience than someone who has worked part time at a paid occupation.
