If you don't have a whole lot of experience working in the field you are trying to get in, a resumÃ© is pointless. Why companies don't simply ask you to write a letter explaining why they should be hired, I don't know. I gotta say, my resume is pretty thin. In fact, I don't even have one. I can tell you I've worked as a marketing intern for a theater company for a few months, and that I've spent the last year and a half working at a hotel, but is that really important? I think the initial process that is normally designated for handing over a resumÃ© should instead be a letter (for most places, this is the cover letter) explaining why you would be a valuable asset to the company. A video should also be enough to suffice. The only thing a well written resumÃ© is good for is showing your ability to write a resume, yet companies seem to value resumÃ©s as an initial weeding-out process a whole lot.
