Writing effective resumes for student internship

By | April 28, 2017

Resume format for internship students is almost similar to that of freshers looking for a full-time paid employment. Except that, as an intern you are looking for a corporate experience offered by reputed organizations solely for the purpose of gaining on-the-job training in the trade with negligible or no pay at all.

A Well-Framed Education Section is Essential

For experienced professionals, the education section is usually pushed towards the end of the resume with the main focus being on their professional experience. However, for students with no professional experience, the education section is the prime point of emphasis.  Internship resumes can include educational information, relevant courses, activities, scholarships and/or prior work experience.
