If you don't have a lot of work experience, how are you supposed to stretch your resume to fill up an entire page (without using a ridiculously large font size or lying)? I've only had one job in my entire life and I have a four year college degree. That plus my contact information and objective only takes up about half a page. I feel pretty foolish about handing a half-page resume to a potential employer, especially considering most other 23 year olds have held at least 3 or 4 jobs by this point in their life. I used to have a job-related skills section, but I've given up finding a job that's related to my useless college degree so now I'm going to try to apply jobs in which I have no training for or applicable skills.

Why am I asking this social anxiety forum? Because I'm too embarrassed to ask anywhere else and every single book I've looked at on resume writing assumes you've held at least three jobs, have internships, and do lots of volunteer work. They don't write books on writing resumes for normal people.
