I have hired lots of people, and I always look for a few things:
- relevant experience ... even if it's your first job, what things have you done in high school or your social life that might help you in your work? For example volunteering or leading a sports team may be useful, or playing in a band in front of people is good experience if you're expected to be customer-facing.
- good presentation ... ask a friend or family member to read over your resume for spelling mistakes or sentences that aren't clear. Attention to detail matters!
- Show you understand the job ... pick out key phrases from the job advert and repeat them in the resume when adding how your experience matches the advert.
Good luck in applying!
