Hi, I'm in that paradoxical beginning stage where I'm at "entry level" after graduating high school, but even all the entry level jobs require a level of experience I don't have. Just to clarify: Experience in terms of time in the workforce, not to be mistaken with level of expertise.
What makes things harder for me personally is that despite getting A/V certified in high school, it's hard to diagnose what job I should be looking for, finding them available in my league/skillset, and meeting all the specific demands.
The job titles alone tend to be very ambiguous and hard to trace, since not all of them are called "Audio Visual Media Producer", and then each one that I find has their own interpretation of what kind of capabilities & responsibilities the role should have. All of this plus other noticeable factors make it very difficult to land something that pays fairly.
I don't think there's a golden solution to this, perhaps if I just keep applying to the qualifying options that I find, I'll get lucky, but what I'm wondering is, is there something I can do to better my situation going forward?
To clarify, I'm a high school graduate who took an Audio/Visual program course (+ business classes), with Adobe & Microsoft certifications. #jobsearch #entrylevel #advice

Hi Herlinda, great question! I would say that people should stay in their role so they can get promoted or even move up the ladder so they can get better working hours.
Today we will look at three tips you should keep in mind when creating your résumé and sharing it on digital job boards.
Let’s dive in!
- Trim Unnecessary Information
First, you should eliminate unnecessary information from your résumé. In college and throughout high school, we were told that every good résumé needs to start with an objective. The purpose of this section is to show potential employers what we want from our lives so they can judge whether our goals align with their own. The reality is the objective section of your résumé is likely causing employers to skip over your application.
Employers today know that countless people have the exact same objective, rendering this piece of information obsolete. Instead of adding filler content to your résumé, use this opportunity to display your relevant job skills.
You should also consider removing your accolades if they are technologically outdated. For instance, an IT specialist will not find it impressive that you’re a master of Windows 2000. Your skills must be relevant to the job and current technology.
- Invest In Online Courses
While we are on the topic of skills, let’s talk about the importance of taking classes and earning certifications. There are plenty of online courses available that can help you develop your skills as a professional. Research your industry and find courses that interest you and are relevant to your field.
Online classes can help you sharpen your skills and write a killer résumé. If an employer is thinking about hiring you, seeing that you are certified in a topic relevant to the job can seal the deal.
For instance, if you wanted to hire a social media specialist for your online business and 100 people applied, you would likely instantly remove the people who are not certified. Employers will filter potential hires based on their experience, so additional training and certifications will make you stand out from everyone else.
- Use Keywords For Visibility
When you think of keywords, you probably think of search engine optimization (SEO) for a blog or business. It might surprise you to learn that using the right keywords in your application can improve your chances of landing a job.
In most cases, businesses post their listing to online job boards where participants can apply when they are ready. Employers can search through applications and filter candidates who haven’t yet applied on job board hubs.
Adding the right keywords to your profile and résumé can instantly improve your market visibility. In other words, if someone needs to find an employee and searches the database, they may come across your profile because you used the right language in the résumé you uploaded.
I suggest including words or phrases that are relevant to your industry throughout the job listing. If you’re looking for a job as a writer, you’ll want to include plenty of relevant primary and secondary keywords about writing. This slight adjustment could put you in a position where employers are coming to you instead of the other way around.
Back To You
These three tips will not guarantee you a job, but they will give you an edge in a competitive market jam-packed with qualified candidates. As your career grows, don’t forget to make changes to your skills, add certifications and update your references. When you’re done, you’ll have established yourself as an experienced, educated and qualified candidate. And this is why I continue to remind everyone to update their resumes and be consistent in updating your profile. Use the Jobcase Resume Builder to achieve your goal in getting hired. Good Luck
Absolutely if your a good self manager. If not then your setting yourself up for failure...
As a 2d design background person; Keep it organized, simple, and clean. Don't add your headshot photo. I don't know why people do it.
Don't use hardworking as a skill. Please, add your real skill as using known software, editing, etc.
As I am waiting to hear a notice telling me that I was selected to be interviewed, I continue to feel anxious as my background has been exclusively made of experiences in healthcare industry.

In the case the Bank decides to hire someone of my description, I suspect that that newly employed should go through some kind of short term training before he be able/ allowed to work independently. Am I rifght?
@Gary Jackson Entry level positions are temporary, but a phase mostly everyone has to go through to gain experience in any field. Part of paying your dues in your professional life. But I recommend seeking an internship. Some actually compensate, but others don’t. But you will gain experience and possibly land a job where you internship at.
