I am trying to write a resume with no job experience and would like some tips and feedback. Please also include how to address a lack of experience during an interview. Below is the google doc link.

Expand on your academic work. It's clear that you'll be starting entry level, any work history, relevant or not would help. If you've waited tables, maintained yards, delivered pizzas, etc that'll demonstrate you have some idea of responsibility and commitment.

What jobs are you trying to apply for? Go get a retail job over the holidays, they'll take anyone with a pulse right now and then that can serve as some experience, fast food...same thing and none of them need a resume.

You must have done odd jobs, lawn mowing, babysitting etc. Not to mention volunteer work, you must have volunteered for something at some point through school or church.

Focus on skills that you have (money handling, math skills, and tools you have used). Your post is just too vague. and I could't see the link.

I'd assume trying to get a holiday help position the day before Thanksgiving is a bit late.

Yep, but you can put in an app and places like Macy's will send you an email asking for you to schedule an interview date. They will probably need some people for the month of December.
