What do you put on job applications if you have no experience?


Question Posted Monday November 8 2010, 8:26 pm

I have a job application for a restaurant and it says I have to list three past jobs and I haven't had any. what do I put? The only thing I've ever did is babysit. Ive been applying for jobs and I put babysitting for past jobs and I haven't gotten a call back for none of them.

put babysitting, make up some volunteer work like cleaning the park and n/a for the last one.

My first job was an under the table job too. When it came time for me to get a job at a place like a restaurant or store or something I just left the experience part blank. They know that there are people that have never really had a job before. It is a little harder getting a job with no experience but someone will give you a chance. You just have to keep applying until that time comes. Good luck!

Put babysitting, any volunteer experience you have, and also put "references provided upon request". I'm assuming you're a teenager/young adult? The places you're applying will know you won't have years of experience.


Also, make a point of calling back and expressing interest in the job. Otherwise your application falls to the bottom of a pile.
