Below is an example of a resume for a summer job in sales. Because the job seeker is a college student with limited employment history, she has listed a variety of job, volunteer, and extracurricular experience on her resume.

If you have limited work history, you can include these kinds of unpaid experiences on your resume. The trick is to explain how these experiences helped you develop skills or abilities that will be useful in the job for which you are applying.

For instance, in this resume example, the job seeker mentions how her work at an Open Pantry gave her experience working a cash register and interacting with the public.
