Can someone critique my resume?
I’m 23 and I’m graduating soon with a bachelor’s degree in business management. I have been applying to entry level jobs I seem to qualify for: minimum education of high school diploma, customer service experience, computer skills, etc. I have been applying to HR assistant and administrative assistant jobs. It’s been two weeks and I put in a lot of applications but no response for an interview at all.
I don’t know what’s wrong. The contact information is okay, no misspelled words, I apply for jobs I seem to match with, so what’s the issue? My resume is organized and plain. There is no bright fun colors, pictures, or anything like that but I don’t think that is the issue.
Here is my resume. I left out my name, contact information, and references because it’s personal.
