Student Resume Examples

student resume examples

The student resume examples / samples below consist of resumes for students in college or high school. However, most of the resumes will focus on recent college graduates.

These samples also provide formats and styles that can be helpful for anyone going into an entry level position with no previous job experience. They are also useful for a college student looking for an internship job position.

You will notice most of the resume samples are fairly brief. You will also find that It is common to use an objective statement rather than a summary, but it is fine to use both or a combination of the two. It is more common to include extra detail in the education section of a student resume and move that section towards the top of the document rather than at the bottom.

Many students will include information in the education section about key classes, GPA, Major GPA, Scholarships, academic and social fraternities – sororities, honors and awards. For additional content, you can create a separate section for volunteer work, community service or affiliations and provide more details than you would normally see in a resume for an experienced professional.

Student Resume Tips and Advice

Student resumes need to be fairly simple. On most occasions, it is a good idea to keep the resume to 1 page. You don’t want to go into too much detail. Without much professional experience, you won’t have a lot of information about previous jobs and you certainly don’t need to get into great detail regarding unrelated jobs. Most people worked in bars, restaurants, shopping malls and other non-professional positions during college. You don’t need to write exhaustive statements about your responsibilities in these types of jobs.

If you have had internships or a regular position in your field of study, then it’s a good idea to provide some detail. When it comes to producing content, we generally suggest including as much pertinent information about your studies as possible. Student resume tip: if you are struggling with content build a section about large projects, job specific classes, undergraduate or graduate studies.
