Reminder that if your resume is longer than a single page and that you don't have either 5+ relevant jobs worked, or at least a worthy bachelor's degree, you need to cut down on the bullshit and make it one page.
>I've worked my current job for nearly a year (wageslave, but a comfy one, and in a professional setting so it looks better than all my other jobs) >useless stupid degree, but a good GPA, graduated as part of the honors society and magna cum laude >any relevant volunteer work (changes depending on what I'm applying for, some of the volunteer work that looks best is getting pretty stale since it's 5+ years since I've done it now but I don't mention that)
Should I just lie on my CV? I don't have any hobbies/interests, I can't recall anyone that might give me a reference, I have never been employed so there's this glaring gap of five years between when I could've started working and now (I'm 21), and my 'soft skills' are the exact fucking same as everyone else's.
The annoying thing is I can't even think of anywhere I'd like to work, but I need money to keep living.

I have two separate ones. One with all my retail jobs which are half of the page and one with my college skills and experiences relevant to my degree.
The order >name and address >university and gpa >two column box with all my skills and certifications >listing of jobs I've done or experience that are related to the job >listing of awards and activities All on one page
>>25723459 it's 2 pages, a header with my vital info and a QR code at the top
first page is a two-line "profile" and all my education and work experience
second page is just misc. stuff like competitions I've been in in the past, stuff I do on the side that's relevant, etc. y'know, stuff like "knows how to use a computer", "ran a home server", "wore a mascot suit once and didn't die of heatstroke", "won a poledancing contest while in said mascot suit", etc
it also has a little printed thing to fill in my availability because everyone always asks it, so I figured it'd be good to just have a little printed bar for it instead of scrawling it on the top every time
>>25723633 what if it's double-sided and has siome whitespace and filler on the reverse side
>>25723893 Salesfag here. I used to work as a technical recruiter and yeah, you'll get hired as a junior or entry level engineer no problem. My best advise is to list three or four major projects in school and detail what programs and languages you used and how
