If you are looking for a way to improve your resume right out of college, you have several options to consider. Securing an internship may be the best means to improve entry level resumes for recent college grads. Writing entry level resumes is similar to other resume writing except you do need some guidance of what to incorporate and what to leave out.
Although college provides you with a lot classroom experience, it doesn't necessarily translate into practical experience. Not only will internships make you more marketable, they may lead to permanent employment at the place of your internship or to a valuable recommendation from your internship supervisor.
Additionally, if you choose a truly relavant internship, you are really giving yourself a practical leg up in the industry of your choice. Not only are you getting valuable work experience, you can never start networking too early!
