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.
