Sample Resume for College Graduates

Sample Resume for College Graduates
This resume is a modified version of the chronological format. It is geared for college graduates who may not have a significant amount of prior experience.

As you gain more experience through your first job, internships or some other opportunity, add that information to the work history (or Experience) section. You can then edit out the “Relevant Experience” section bit by bit until it can be totally eliminated.

Always Remember! Your resume should never be more than one page.

*Please note: This is not a real resume. It is designed only to provide a guide for formatting of your own personal resume.
