Graduate CV

A graduate CV is for students who just passed out of college, and are looking for employment opportunities which suit their educational qualification. This CV should be written in such a way that it showcases effectively your skills, accomplishments and professional experiences. It is important to keep the CV concise and avoid making it bulky with too much of information.

The details of educational qualification  is of great importance in this CV. In order to give the employer a snapshot of your academic achievements, start with the university grades and then go down to the other details like high school etc. Since graduates have limited work experience they should highlight details of internships, voluntary work and summer placements effectively for better employment opportunities.
