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 wording we use, the structure, and the design of this resume were all strategically selected to fit the unique needs of a unique individual.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.

Sharon is a terrific partner in this process! She did an excellent job of reframing my experience (very difficult to do) and producing a "clean" resume. Excellent quality and writing (and I'm very, very particular about writing style and form). Every contact I had with your organization was highly professional and 100% customer focused. Thank you! I would love to have the opportunity to work with Sharon and your organization again...you delivered a high-quality product in a timely, professional fashion.

It was hard to accept change when I'm so invested into the version I had prepared myself. Without question the change has been a benefit and I'm proud to stand on it....The new version is much clearer, more organized and significantly easier to read. I have great confidence it displays my abilities best. I hope to be back in a three or four years when I have more experience under my belt and I'm ready to move to another position.

I am so pleased with the quality of your work and the service received that I have already passed your name and website address to several people!! It is amazing and quite impressive to me how you so easily interpret a couple of sentences in a profile and turn it into a professional document that articulates and describes my roles and responsibilities to a tee! Very rarely do I encounter such great customer service and response times to inquiries...that alone sold me on your services. I will continue working with you for as long as you stay in business or until I retire from working! Again, thanks so much on a great job...I'll keep you posted on my job search success.
