I recently graduated college and I'm trying to fine tune my resume. I'm seeking a entry level finance position such as: financial analyst, trader, or financial adviser.

Any help would be appreciated - Thanks!

    You need an internship, yesterday. I also am not sure about listing your GPA. I guess since you have no experience at all it might help them quantify you, but it isn't good enough to put on IMO. You should start networking to get an internship, and try to get anything remotely finance related on there. Times are tough.

    Hello Zgarske,

    I don't want to sound like a downer but it is going to be extremely difficult for you to land a finance position with your resume as is. There is so much stiff competition in the world of finance along with all the economic turmoil. I don't really know how your finances are but you should try to pursue a master's degree and try to obtain some finance related internship for experience. I would also tell you to network but that is also going to be difficult because you don't have any finance related experience to talk about. Pertaining to your resume; take out the related course work it is assumed all finance majors take these relevant classes, and for your skills/interest add something with more of an educational purpose. I don't know what to say, I'm in no better boat but I've busted my rear end to be where I am now. I'm surprised you haven't done the same in college.

    It's a sad resume, but you know what overcomes a sad resume? Networking. You're going to need to do a lot of that.

    Also the lengthy list of hobbies at the bottom is dwarfing much of your work experience. I would take that out.
