Recent college graduate sample resume template
After a student graduates from college, the first and the foremost task to be done is to create a resume to seek a job in the desired field. For many recent college graduates this will be the very first resume of their carrier and many people are puzzled: what can I write in a resume if I don’t have any work experience? Well, resume format usually differs from one job to another. For instance, the format of a resume for a job where vast experience is required is different from a format of a resume where position only requires simple skills and abilities to perform the job.
If you are a novice in the job market and do not have much idea on how to present skills in a resume, this template will guide in creating a professional resume to get that dream job. Recent college graduate resume template comes with pre-made formatting and pre-set styles to facilitate getting that professional look you would like for your resume. It also helps you to structure your resume since sample text sections are included.
Since you are a recent college graduate, it is understood that you have very little experience or none at all, so the format of your resume should highlight your education, your skills, and training.
This resume template is split into four following sections:
The personal section shows the name of the applicant, his/her date of birth, address, phone number and email address. Any resume must mention the personal information so that the hiring manager knows the general information like gender and age of the candidate. Some companies will also use this information to do standard background check. It is estimated that almost half of all candidates applying for a job provide either false or tweaked information, so it is only natural that employers wants to make sure they are getting what you told them they are getting. Unless you are applying for position that requires government security clearances, the background check is quite simple. The employer might call the university to make sure you have graduated and to check your grades.
- Summary of qualification
The summary of qualification is to mention those achievements and specific qualifications that are relevant to the job post that you are applying for. Qualifications should be short, to the point, relevant to position you are applying for and might be of great value to the hiring company.
The education section allows you to mention the schools, colleges and universities attended throughout the academic years in a chronological order.
- Specialized trainings
In specialized trainings sections, all those trainings could be written in a bulleted list. For instance, if the college graduate is applying for a post of CSR in Telecommunication Company, he may list the training received in customer service representative along with the tenure of the training.
