The 5 main things your CV should include are:
Make sure your details are updated and are presented as clearly as possible. And to get past the Applicant Tracking System or ATS, include keywords relevant to the job post you’re responding to.
To create a CV with no job or work experience, pay extra attention to crafting your professional statement. Your statement should be clear and concise—no more than three sentences. It should include:
You should also emphasize your educational attainment. Include your GPA or honors if you have them. Mention courseworks or workshops you’ve taken that are relevant to the position you’re applying for.
To stand out, tailor your CV for the specific job post you’re responding to. Use keywords found in the post and show how your academic history and interests have prepared you for the position.
