That’s why our free student resume template is designed to make the process simple and easy.

It covers all of the basics, including:

Designed to give them the best chance of success

When young people are writing a resume for the first time, it’s easy for them to do things that might negatively affect their ability to gain work.

Adding things like non-essential information, too much information, or poor formatting.

PLUS we’ve included example templates too (so you can show your students what a good resume looks like). 

Our free student resume template is designed to be:

One page
Additional pages are often discarded or overlooked, so this template keeps it on one page

Many employers use resume-scanning software, so this template is designed to be readable

Students don’t tend to have a lot of things to highlight yet (such as experience), so this template helps their story shine

Best of all, you’ll get the template in a Microsoft Word-compatible format, so you can adjust it and use it as many times as you like.
