A student looking for a first job always finds it extremely hard to write a resume. This is usually due to the fact that there isn’t much to write in the resume due to lack of experience. While this is true, it is important to understand that the resume does not necessarily have to possess all that a candidate has done; what the candidate can do is more important at times.

Here is a sample of a Research Assistant resume of a computer sciences graduate seeking a research assistant position in Computer Science department. You can customize it in order to make your own resume.
