57. Overcome Lack of Experience & Defeat Resume Gaps

Show Notes | June 29, 2020 | Episode 057

Lack of experience and resume gaps are oftentimes something we dread. But guess what? There are many ways to overcome these issues. In this episode, we recommend focusing on 2 areas over the course of the next 12 weeks: 1) Volunteer Work and Internships 2) Pursuing a new certification. We also cover one of the best ways to overcome the resume gap or to avoid looking like you have arbitrarily hopped from job to job. Did you ever realize you can totally ditch specific dates? You can also pursue organizing your work experience functionally instead of chronologically. Let’s dive in.
