Example Student Resume

Sample Student Resume for a New Graduate

Writing a student resume can be challenging; often because of lack of material to put in the resume. It isn’t common for a student to go to the job market with a two-page resume. Even more uncommon is a three-page one like this example student resume.

But, this example student resume illustrates an important point. If the information you want to include in your resume is on-target, highly relevant to the employers you are reaching out to, compelling, and easy to read, don’t feel the need to cut content simply for the sake of space.

Even though this student resume is three pages, it meets all these criteria and was highly effective in generating both interviews and job offers for this new graduate. In fact, within a couple of months this client had multiple appealing job offers to choose from.

More Tips for Writing Your Student Resume

Do you worry that you may not have enough material for your student resume? Consider including the relevant coursework you have taken while working on your degree (this is a great way to make sure your student resume is filled with the most important keywords for your profession). You may also include relevant and impressive class projects, internships and work study, extracurricular activities, and volunteer work. Just be sure that everything you include is relevant to and ties back to the type of work you are targeting with your new resume.

As with all our sample resumes, please keep in mind that this example is protected by copyright. While that alone is a strong enough reason for you to avoid trying to copy it and use it as your own, and more compelling reason against copying is that it will likely backfire and do your career more harm than good. The resumes that we write are as unique as the clients we write them for. The wording we use, the structure, and the design of this resume were all strategically selected to fit the unique needs of a unique individual. You are just as unique and your resume should be unique too. We will be honored to work with you! Just request a quote for your project here.

Thank you so much for the great resume. Thomas did a superb job and should be commended for such. The resume looks great and Thomas made the entire process easy and smooth. I would like you to know that since I was laid off the day I returned the worksheet to you I was in a scramble to draft up my own just so that I would have something to use in my job search until I received my "Distinctive" resume. When I received my resume, I was blown away at how much better Thomas was able to present the same information. More than that though, my resume from Distinctive Documents is truly a confidence booster and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. Please recognize Thomas for his great work and professionalism. And thank you, thank you, thank you! I will recommend your services to others without hesitation.

I have been waiting before writing to give you the great news...I applied to about eight recruitment agencies with my resume attached, all on the Internet. Within a few days I was contacted and asked to go for an interview at a company only 35 miles away. It is 3.5 years old and sells consultancy at a very senior level in large corporations...This week I received the offer letter...What has become very clear in this process is the incredible value of a good resume. Because you made it abundantly clear what I had achieved through a "messy" but interesting career path, this recruitment agency was immediately able to connect my past experience with the vacancy they knew needed me. I did not need to explain the details of my past but rather was able to continually point out where my past benefited or suited the vacancy being offered. It meant that I was able to concentrate on selling myself rather than explaining myself away...So, to say thank you seems so inadequate. But say it, I will. Thank you for doing such a good job. I have to say I did not think I would find another job at my age, but with a combination of good luck and a good resume, I made it....Initially I thought your service was expensive, but given the results, no one could complain. Thank you again.

Outstanding quality and professionalism. The writer was excellent (hope to again work with her on future updates, focus resumes, thank you letters, etc.) She was creative, thought provoking and openly shared her knowledge and experience. I could not be more satisfied with the end result. Great investment and will certainly recommend your services to others.

This is just a short note to let you know that I have been offered the position of Director of Educational and Administrative Technology for the XXXX XXXX XXXX...Feedback from some of the members of the selection committee revealed that they were "blown away" by the resume. Actually, they only had me in for a single interview. This leads me to believe that this particular employer took great credence on the ability of the resume to communicate in my absence. I consider your work very instrumental in both the success of landing the job, and in the ability to successfully assert a salary requirement that is significantly higher for this particular area of the country...You can be sure that you are a permanent part of my electronic rolodex. If anyone ever needs a top-quality resume, you can be sure that your name will be mentioned.
