Limited Work History:|
For example if you are fresh out of school, you have a limited work history or had jobs that are not relevant to the position you are applying for you may want to put a relevant education history first.
In another case you may have an irrelevant education history but had jobs that are relevant, in that situation you may want to put the jobs first.
If you feel you really have nothing relevant If you think about it you will most likely find there are parallels you can make between unrelated fields.
If you do run into this situation you will need to decide what can be seen as relevant and put that near the top.
If you don't have much to work with then all you can do is use what you have as far as education and job history and make the best of it.
It is recommended that you don't lie since at some point you may be found out and terminated, or asked to perform a job skill that you claimed you have.
