What do I do about the resume/cv in the Professional experiences section if I don't have any professional experience in my field?

Take work experience from outside your field and connect it by highlighting key skills. Responsibility, reliability, communication, self-sufficiency are just a few skills that you may have demonstrated in even a non-technical job.

You can do a similar thing with academic experiences you may have had: major presentations/projects, organization/leadership in extracurricular groups, etc.

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.

Thank you for being a part of this community.
