Writing a resume as a recent college graduate can be quite challenging. When you're just starting out in your career, you have limited professional experience to prove the value you can bring to an employer.

By focusing on successes achieved during college and proving how these skill can be transferred to real work-life situations, recent college graduates can create attention-grabbing resumes that communicate a strong message of value.
