An entry-level job is usually designed for students and career shifters. The job designation most of the time does not require prior experience and professional backgrounds. If you are not familiar with a job and want to try if you can do good should you be hired for that post, being an entry-level employee is the right thing for you to aspire as of the moment.
Applying for a job where you have a little to no experience doing can be hard especially with the growing competition nowadays. Being able to curate a comprehensive entry-level résumé will help you do the trick.

If you are familiar with the standard types of resume (chronological, functional, combined, and targeted), focus on the functional type.
If you are a fresh graduate or someone who wants a career shift, this resume is just for you.
A functional résumé helps applicants to highlight their abilities and skills more than their work experiences. It helps them assure the employer that the lack of professional experience can be supplemented by their abilities to do the job and work properly as an employee.
If you are a career shifter and you think that you need to enumerate a few of your work experiences as well, there is no need to worry as you may put them at the latter parts of the résumé. Again, more than indirect experiences, the ability to do the job and its functions are more important as of the moment for bigger chances of getting interviewed or even hired.
Since there is no basis on how you will be able to do the job that will be assigned to you, an assessment of your skills and talents is needed to be done by your prospective employer. You need to list down all of them, especially the technical skills that the job requires. Again, be keen to details and make sure that you are ready to the answer should you be asked on how you can use a certain skill work for the job that you are applying for.
