Document Overview

A good resume sells yourself by providing a succinct summary of why you would be a good fit for the role you are applying for. This Resume template is designed for high school or university students who are seeking to apply for jobs.

Use this Resume if:

  • You are applying for a job as a student

  • You need a well-structured resume for a job application

What does this Resume cover?

  • A summary of your education, skills, experience and achievements.

  • Your contact information.

  • Your most recent education.

  • Your professional experience.

  • Your extracurricular activities.

  • Your skills.

  • Your references.

Resume writing tips:

  • Don’t be over-descriptive, nor too vague: employers may view this as a way of overcompensating for an area an employee is not strong in.

  • Ensure it is well-presented: format your achievements in reverse chronological order.

  • Pay attention to spelling or grammatical errors: ask a friend or relative to read over it.

  • Use bullet points: facilitate easy reading.

  • Address any large gaps in your employment: e.g. took time off to raise children, gain experience in another industry, further education, etc. Without addressing such gaps, it may leave a negative impression on the recruiter that you have a lack of present industry experience.

  • Avoid including your work contact details: ensure your personal email address is appropriate.

  • Be truthful: you may face serious consequences if you lie on your Resume, including legal action due to fraud, termination of employment, financial consequences, and repercussions for future employment.

Should I include my photo on my Resume?

Unless the job post specifically requests that you include your photo, it is recommended to not add one your Resume. The purpose of a Resume is to showcase your achievements.

What is the difference between a Resume and a CV?

A Curriculum Vitae (CV) is more detailed and does not need to be tailored for different positions. It aims to highlight your achievements throughout your career, including your professional and academic history.

A Resume is a straightforward, tailored document created for the purpose of applying for a particular job. Generally, this should only include employment history relevant to that job.
