How do you write an impressive Resume when you dont have a long list of acheivements and experience and still want it to look good.
And dont want it to sound like "just another empty hollow resume"??

Any tips?

List courses you have taken, where and when; listing skill you have like programming languages you know, frameworks, databases, etc.; you can mention other interest data like travel availability, have a car, and you can write the areas that most interest you.

Make your own achievements and experience. Work on your own projects. Release them as open source.

Thanks Andy.

That was a whole lot of interesting information i got from the thread.
And it was definetly Encouraging..
Considering the job market , its difficult feeling positive for getting entry level job , but there will alwyas be hope:)

I am still a newbee am I am still juggling with Jsps n servlets ( studying for SCWCD).
I have never really worked on a project or made something myself.You know a hands-on-experience.
Its always been a little theory and a little practical but never completely practical.
(I guess there is a big fear factor of dissapointing myself)

Is there anything you can suggest , how i can start and still complete on my own.

You suggestions and tips were wonderful.
Thanks.
