First things first, make sure your CV is tailored to the job you are applying for. This is important. If you have a CV with no work experience, then the key is to focus on your soft and hard skills, rather than the experience you don't have. Scan the job posting and pull out all of the relevant skills and qualifications the recruiter is looking for. This could include things like attention to detail, customer service experience or good time management. In order to tailor your CV to the job, it's important to incorporate the skills you see into your CV. You can include them in your personal statement or you could create a dedicated 'Skills' column. The key is to make sure the recruiter can see that this is not a generic CV and that you possess skills relevant to the job posting.

Want some free advice? Treat your extra-curricular activities and volunteer work like jobs. Evidence shows that employers are willing to take voluntary experience into account when considering a candidate for a position. Therefore, spend time mentally sifting through the last 10 years and think about the times you may have volunteered at a company, conducted charity work, completed mandatory work experience or relevant coursework in high school or at a university – anything that will look good on a CV. It may not have been paid work, but you certainly would have gained some valuable skills doing it. (Source: www.topcv.com)
