When you are applying for an internship, chances are you have no or very less work experience, which means you have to rely on your skills and past projects to get considered for your internship. With Canva, you can use visual elements to showcase your projects in your resume.
No matter what type of internship you want to apply for — design, technical, writing, or anything else, you will find a resume layout fitting your needs on Canva. Select a layout and edit it using the drag and drop tools.
Add details about your bio, skills, and projects by using Canva’s predesigned font combinations and typography. You can also enhance the text by using bold, italic, bullet points, and text spacing.
Make your resume vibrant and visually appealing by adding graphic elements to it. You can add your professional picture just next to your name and use graphics to depict your skills, projects, and hobbies.
If you already have images on your computer, you can add them to the resume by clicking on the green ‘Upload your own images’ button. In case you are adding multiple images, you can use the grid and frame tool to ensure all the images blend properly.
Don’t have all the visual elements you need? That’s okay because Canva’s media library has over a million images, graphics, and illustrations that you can use. Most of these elements are free, while only a few cost $1 for each one-time use.
Finalized the resume design? It’s now time to send it to all the companies and get your dream internship. If you are going for an interview, you can print out your resume and take it with you. Download the resume in PDF-Print format to get high-quality print every time.
You can also email your resume directly to the company recruiters by clicking on the “share” button. Alternatively, you can click on the share button and post your resume on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to get more visibility and better internship offers.
