New graduates should not omit fast food or retail jobs from their resumes, blogger Alison Green writes in this post. Such jobs can highlight people skills and reliability in a candidate. Also, they should target places to apply, but focus broadly on fields and places to work, keeping in mind that internships can be useful if the search is slow, Green suggests. "Many internships are open to non-students, and they can be a good way to get experience and give you something to put on your resume while you continue to search for something full-time," Green writes.
