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.

I wanted to let you know I have accepted a new position as an account manager with Xxxxx. I definitely believe the custom written resume and cover letter made the difference. It got me the interview, actually multiple interviews, and the position I was offered matched my work history and background extremely well. I am very excited to start my new job and feel very thankful to have such a wonderful opportunity in these challenging times. Thanks again to you and your team. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

I wanted to get back with you and let you know that on Friday, I accepted a job for which I am very excited. I will start December 2, 2002 as the Vice President, Sales and Marketing for a company called XXXXXXX. They provide full service packages for XXXXXXXXX. I will also be the business unit manager for a new business they will launch in the coming months. Their services are based on providing the very best and comprehensive service at very competitive prices. It is a great opportunity to leverage my last 10 years in college and university relations and youth marketing. It is also located right here in XXXXX, about four miles from my house! There will be some international travel (very exciting) but there won't be the heavy domestic travel that I've had for the last 7+ years. And so I am now embarking on my first extended vacation since college. This feels like such a luxury. I want to sincerely thank you for all of your help through this process. The resume that you created was absolutely critical in my landing this position. I had more than a half a dozen interviews within weeks of circulating my resume, was a finalist for three positions and was offered two positions. The one that I accepted is without a doubt the best fit. I am truly thankful and feel very blessed to have had my search turn out this way. I hope all is well with you and I will continue to recommend your services very highly.
