How to Write a Student CV
Students need to focus more than others on cv layout, grammar, attention to detail, and addressing the selection criteria. Do not try to claim significant experience on your student CV unless you truly have it, because at this stage you are selling yourself on promising rather than past events. Nobody will expect a school leaver to have had years of job-relevant experience, and unless such claims are supported by convincing evidence, you run the risk of recruiters dismissing you as a liar, deluded, or hopelessly out of touch with what experience really means.
Students should highlight key competences that clearly address the selection criteria mentioned in the job advertisement. The student CV must emphasise achievements all the way through. Jobs and schooling must be clearly explained, highlighting what was done well. You may want also to emphasize your adaptive skills that would tend to overcome a lack of experience.
Remember that most students have far more valuable skills and experience than they realize, and usually fail to include those ‘employability assets’ in their student CV.
EasyJob CV Builder’s features a functional CV that you can simply choose from the resume maker, which constitutes the right solution to create a really good student CV.
EasyJob CV Builder program lists hundreds of CV skills arranged under broader subjects, and provides you with several “skill-finding” examples to help you translate duties into CV skill headings and allow you to more effectively present the short work experience you have and the skills you gained.
