How to write your own Summer Research Intern resume?
1. Explain your academic achievements
If you are pursuing an academic career path, the education section will be one of the most important parts of your resume and you should spend an appropriate amount of time making it as good as possible. Any academic awards and accomplishments should be included and you can also mention important coursework and, for example, publications (if applicable). On the other side, do not make the mistake of making this section too long and try to always stay consistent and to the point. Perfecting the education section will improve your resume and significantly increase your chances of getting hired.

2. Add volunteering section
As a student or fresh graduate, you probably don't have much work experience and that's the main reason why you should compensate it by including other sections to your resume where you can show off your qualities and abilities. One of the best sections to do this is volunteering. Often described as useless, your volunteering experience can actually help you to stand out from the crowd, especially if it's relevant to the job you are applying for. Therefore, do not hesitate and add all relevant volunteering positions to your resume. Again, don't make this section too long and only include things which you feel are important and the recruiters might find them interesting.

3. Write a thank-you email
Even though this tip does not directly apply to creating a good resume, we feel it's very important and should not be skipped. Knowing how to write a good thank-you email can be very helpful. Imagine that you went to an interview and did, in your opinion, very well. But you are against other 9-10 candidates and most of them, not surprisingly, won't send the email. What do you think are the hiring managers gonna say when they see that you are the only one who sent it? Right, that you have done something extra. And although we realize it's not the most important thing, by doing something as simple as that and spending a few minutes on the thank-you email, you actually be the one who gets the job.
