Resume Examples for Students

in Resume Examples and Samples

Resume Examples for College StudentsA student resume is a resume-in-training. This is the first of many resumes that you will write. Without much work experience the resume must be built around what you do have. Use anything that will make up for the lack of work experience like your education, training, community service and/or high school and college activities you’ve participated in. Start off by listing contact information. From there list a summary first. It should explain why this resume was sent to the employer. You can add an objective in place of a summary but for this resume a summary is preferred. Then list your education. It’s important to do this because it helps you let potential employers not focus so much on the ‘no work experience’ thing. Add any training here in this section. Then list your skills. After skills place any work experience here. It’s placed toward the bottom of the resume. It’s not that it isn’t important; you shouldn’t make it become important by having it stick out like a sore thumb. The focus should be on the education and skills. Experience can include volunteer work and community service. After that place any interests, achievements, academics, awards/honors and activities that relate to the job you’re applying for. Label each as such. For example use awards as a title for awards; for student organizations use activities as a title. If you have any include references at the bottom. It should be one page. An example of a student resume is below.
