Student Resume Examples

Student Resume Examples

These student resume examples illustrate that even when you have little experience beyond your college education, you can still create a powerful and effective resume. Each of these 4 student resume examples are different. Every person is unique and offers unique skills and talents in the workplace and your resume should be unique too, designed to showcase these differentiators.

Student Resume Examples 1

While this graduating student who was seeking a position in the financial services industry had no related employment experience, we showcased her coursework and some educational projects she had worked on to illustrate her qualifications. The strong qualifications profile calls out some significant  credentials that were sure to set her apart from other candidates for the jobs she was targeting.

student resume examples 2

This recent college graduate had completed an internship related to her target position as an entry-level programmer. She had also completed a number of technical projects as part of her coursework that really illustrated her skills. Although she didn’t have any traditional employment to include, she possessed strong leadership skills which we chose to emphasize by describing her extracurricular and AFROTC activities.

Student Resume Examples 3

In this student resume example, we made a strong case for this soon-to-be mechanical engineering graduate as a strong hire for entry-level engineering roles. As in all our student resume examples, notice how the use of design elements such as selective bolding, color, and ruling lines can make a resume stand out.

Student Resume Examples 4

Although this job seeker was still a student and had come to us to have the this resume written prior to graduation, he already had impressive experience in his field of choice as a result of a research project he worked on.

 

As we’ve explained elsewhere please remember that these and all our sample resumes, are 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.

My opportunity search is going reasonably well. I have had about 6 agencies submit me to about 10 openings. Half of those agencies I had not worked with previously and had to go interview with them to prove that I can dress myself correctly etc. All of them were pleased with the new resume. One just couldn't stop saying "wow".

Two of the agencies asked for info on where I had it done and I gave them the pertinent details. I believe they were interested in using your services for some of their clients vs having someone in house or local, especially after seeing the spectacular job you did on mine.

Of the 10 openings they submitted my resume to, I have had one two-hour interview (managers in a different city) and three company site interviews. I believe I have a good chance of receiving an offer from the last one I did of these on Friday.

In addition to the agencies, I have researched approximately 40 companies that looked interesting and submitted my resume directly to them via email (75%) and fax (25%). For handful that were especially interesting, I spent some extra effort on company research and customized the blind-submittal letter to target them and also found operations managers email addresses. Bypassed the HR department and careers@/jobs@ generic buckets. None of these direct contacts had a relevant position advertised on their website or any of the job boards . . . Of all of these, one of them has responded favorably and has given me two rounds of interviews thus far. They are in the process of drafting a contract offer, which I hope to see soon. This was a company that didn't even know they were in need of someone like me before my resume/letter came floating into their view. :-)

Very happy with the results thus far. I'll definitely keep plugging your services when appropriate in the future.

(Then several days later from above client)

Just dropping you a quick note to let you know that I have received the first contract draft for my new position. It will be a one year contract at a leading Canadian fixed-wireless internet service provider. Decent rate, decent people, interesting work all await me next week. This was a place that I had mentioned previously that didn't have any positions of this type advertised at all, and didn't consciously know they needed my help, before the wonderful new resume landed in front of them. I attribute my landing of this contract almost 100% to the super job you did on my resume. I had the raw materials, but you sure got them to "clean up nice" :-)

I would to thank you for the outstanding work you have done on my executive resume and cover letter. Both documents are perfect... In the future I don’t need to look to another company for updating my resume. I will only use the services of your company. The whole resume writing service is beyond comparison. I have never seeing such outstanding work, very friendly but high quality service.

V.M., Greece

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.

Thank you so much for sending me the email with all finalized project files. I have opened them and saved them on my laptop. I will also save a backup copy. Michelle S. did a great job with my resume and cover letter and I am very happy... I will be sure to refer any friends and thanks.

M.R., New York

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.
