Strong Education Weak Experience Resume

Today's world is getting more and more competitive with every passing day. This is because of technological advancements, and constraints of skilled work force in the job market. This has given rise to the trend of advance education where students are opting for higher levels of education, to gain advantage over others. However, when we look from an employer's perspective, it is observed that the lack of experience results in poor practical knowledge of learned skills, which are more developed in students who have work experience.

However, employers still give more preference to experience over actual education, when short listing the candidates. Under such circumstances, it becomes crucial to draft the resume properly so that every skill suitable for the job profile is properly promoted. You can refer to the sample resume for 'people with strong education but weak experience' given on this page.

However, you are advised to write your resume only after referring to the job description given by the employer, as it will help you gauge a fair idea about what the employer expects from the ideal candidate. The sample resume for people with strong education but weak experience given below, can be helpful in communicating your educational background in such a way that, it masks the lack of experience.
