Writing a resume when most of your experience and achievements are in an “academic” frame might be a tad challenging. However, there is no rule that says that a good resume cannot be written if your last experience was simply an internship or in a volunteer position. In fact, some positions require you to not have experience.
If the last time that you held a job was as an intern or extern, you may have to pay a little more attention to writing your resume, as compared to when you write one for an experienced position. The good news is that you do not have to write a long resume to convince the hiring manager of your worth. Instead, write a resume that is wholesome and concise. Here is a sample:
