A Workamper resume is ideally a single page document that highlights your abilities and quickly details your past work experience. This can easily spread to 2 pages for a couple or family, which is totally fine!
Work experience should not be limited to what, if any, experience you have had in actual Workamping. You should also list past working experiences you’ve had in careers that will give you a leg up with employers looking for seasoned workers with specific skills.
When I created my Workamper resume, I didn’t have any Workamping experience, so I could only include my past work experience, which I thought would be helpful to almost any employer! That included customer service, tons of computer and web skills, retail and sales experience as well as some event planning.
As I began to get job offers from employers who were in dire need of some ‘new blood’, I saw that not only were these offers being quoted at higher dollar amounts than what was being reported by fellow Workampers, but some employers were actually creating positions for me based on my experience and trying to bring a new surge of fresh energy to their businesses!
Don’t discount your skills! List what you do best and trust that the perfect job opportunity will present itself! At the very least you’ve done your part by putting it out there. The ball is officially in their court.
