Student Resume Templates

The biggest fear of a student or graduate is that he will not be able to get a job because he has no professional experience. It is one of the most dangerous myths that you can get rid of by writing a great resume. This fear is based on the assumption that can be heard everywhere around you: the employers only want experienced people. You cannot get a job because you don't have any experience and you cannot get experience because you cannot get a job. You will be surprised. The assumption that employers only want experienced people is true. They want. But they don't always find people with experience. Why? On the one hand, because naturally people are promoted or retire leaving empty seats behind them. On the other hand, the business environment is in such a huge development that the demand for professionals is much greater than the opportunity to train them.

As a result, employers adapt: they accept the employment of young people without experience but with much potential and invest in them to turn them into future professionals. Prove that you're such a youngster and escape the trap of the lack of experience. The resume is the first step. Here are three important principles that you need to follow to make a strong resume even though you are professionally inexperienced:

  1. Stress on your professional objective.

    The career objective section is the one where you have the chance to prove you know what you want. The most common mistake among young people without work experience consists in writing a very vague and general purpose, like "having a career" or "becoming a professional". They do this because they fear that a too specific goal will not get them a job or just because they don't know exactly what they want. The secret is to stand out from the crowd through a clear and specific goal, which expresses primarily the domain in which you want to work. The fact that you have taken such a decision, will elude you from the course of selection for jobs which have no connection to your chosen field, but will propel you towards the opportunities in the field. So you actually have won 2 times.

  2. Highlight the voluntary activities and results that you brought.

    No experience does not mean zero activity and zero results. Think carefully of what you've done, and maybe you will find that you went to conferences, had internships, participated in activities in an association, a project of license or personal projects such as building a site. Once you've identified the activities, highlight the performance indicators in your resume. That is, project the most important results that you brought with your involvement. We all have some natural abilities, pushing us towards certain activities and make us have good results, even if the experience is zero. Maybe you did some fundraising for the association and have doubled the budget, or have created a team of 20 volunteers. These are the results.

  3. Structure your CV well.

    How would you feel about an erratically written CV, full of mistakes? Would you read it? Most resumes do not capture the reader's attention for more than 30 seconds, because, although they have something to say, they are inefficient and not structured to highlight the essential. This is such an important thing that there are even specialized writing resume services. Treat your resume as an advertisement. Organize the information carefully, make sure you leave enough space, eliminate irrelevant data and emphasize those things that are of most interest to the employer. Building a career nowadays requires a lot of ambition and hard work. Young professionals are rare, but highly appreciated.
