Many companies or business hire people that do not have any experience. You might ask yourself, why would anyone take this approach? Many times the jobs in question are easy to learn or can be performed by people that can perform basic skills such as typing or stocking shelves. Complex jobs that require a lot of knowledge and training can take years for someone to become proficient. For this reason, jobs hiring people with no experience often require basic communication skills or other easily learned abilities.
During the holidays or for seasonal work, many companies are simply looking for people that are able to perform repeatable tasks. This includes manual labor, typing, answering phones, stocking shelves, assisting delivery drivers, and more. If you are in need of work somewhat quickly, it can be a good idea to apply for a job that does not require any prior experience.
You may or may not need to have a résumé prepared when applying for one of these openings. This is because it may not be necessary to know your prior work history. During an interview, your potential manager might simply ask you about any previous work that you have been involved with. You probably do not have to have any references prepared and in some cases may not need any prior work experience at all. This is rare though, usually businesses will require that you have had a least some working experience, even though it may not be with that particular line of work.
You will likely still need to attend an interview so that the company in question can meet you and determine if you are fit for work. Usually they just have a few questions or want to see if you are physically fit in the event that the job requires any extensive manually labor. Transporting heavy objects or the constant hustle and bustle of a warehouse can be difficult on some people over a period of several hours.
If you get hired for a job, never take it for granted. Make sure to work hard and show up early in your first week in order to impress the team that you will likely be working with. Your manager might slowly give you more responsibility if you are able to achieve results even without any experience. This is a sign that you are a hard worker and that you may be very valuable to the business. In the future you might come up for a promotion where you are given more responsibility or might be needed to train new employees that do not have any prior experience. And now that you do, you are the perfect person for the job!
