Student Resume

This is an example Student Resume/CV for those about to embark on a career. You can copy and paste it onto your own word document, add your own details and print it off.

A Resume/CV should be simple, truthful, concise and no more than 2 pages long. Use KISS – Keep It Short and Simple.

It should tell the Job Interviewer as much about you in as little words as possible because he/she has to sift through many applications.

It should show especially your qualifications, your achievements and strengths. Don’t be modest. These give the interviewer a feel for who you are. Don’t forget your Resume/CV is selling you.

Do not use cheap light photocopier paper that is going to fall apart in the interviewer’s hands. Use heavy paper.

Do not buy a fancy folder to put it in. It will probably be thrown away as your Resume/CV will be put with a pile of others. A simple folder will do.

Do not add a photograph unless requested. Pre-interview sifting of applications can sometimes be judgemental about faces.
