"How am I supposed to get a job when I have no experience?" If you've ever had that thought, then this video blog is for you. People have been asking themselves that question for years, and you are definitely not alone if you are thinking that too.
Anything you can do to gain experience for your resume is better than not having any. To gain some experience, you can try offering to work free for a few weeks, taking on a part time or seasonal job, or landing an internship. Working for free—or nearly free—will not be fun, but it will speak in volumes about your character and will give you some experience to list on your resume.
Keep in mind that it will be easier to start by joining a small business than jumping right into your dream role at a large corporation. You're also more likely to be assigned a wider variety of tasks from a smaller company than from a larger one. A wider array of assigned tasks means more experience, and more experience will hopefully open up more doors down the road. It won't be easy, but starting small is still starting.
I wish you luck with your job hunt, and if there is anything I can do to help, let me know.
