tqc,

What can I do to make my resume better? I've only ever had the one job (scanning medical records/filing at a doctor's office) so there's not much there. I'm currently taking a break from school due to money issues, so that doesn't look that great either.

tl:dr: What can I do to fill in the gaps on my resume?

Do you have a spot for your skills? For example, if it's a receptionist job or something, saying something about Microsoft skills, typing ability, etc.

this is a great suggestion. also if you did any volunteer work or freelance editing or anything at all. i've seen "Relevant coursework" listed too, if you've taken any upper level classes that might apply to certain jobs.

Try some volunteer work! It'll make your resume look better and hopefully give you something to fill your time as well :)

throw in classes you've taken and responsibilities you had on class projects (did you lead one, give a presentation?), any volunteer work you might have done, list things you did at the doctor's office (did you train/manage anyone, were you ever employee of the month, did you come up with a great idea on how to do something) that's all i can think of right at this moment
