An Internship Resume

Every year thousands of jobs higher internship recruits, this internship experience is usually around a 3-month time depending on the needs of your future job! In order to stand out from all the internship Resumes being sent in you need to tailor your Resume just perfectly. Remember the entire purpose of a Resume is to gain skills and experience in a certain job positon, so your employer is not looking for something grand, nor is he interested in you if you already have the experience needed to get a job and not an internship!


For example, if you are applying for a banking internship and have never worked in a bank before, you need to think outside of the box! Think of any time you handled money; could be at a stand, as a cash drawer in a supermarket, or anything of that sort and list it out in your Resume! This way your employer would see that you have an idea of the job you will be doing, you just lack experience; that is where they step in and give you that experience in the internship!


Internship recruits know you have no professional skills, they are looking for someone willing to learn and grown with transferable skills. That is exactly what you need to show in your Resume. The transferable skills you should mention in your Resume can be varied and diverse. Look at the following list:


  • Ability to communicate
