There are many nice layouts, but the one I think you can use is. (ranked by importance):
1. Skills - categorize by something like Tools, Language. This is MUCH BETTER THAN "About us", which a lot of people write things like "I am fast learner...."
2. Projects/Working Experience - write very clearly in numbers what you achieve. Delete any project that is not DS relevant, or just write one-liner about it.
3. Education - mention clearly what courses you take that is relevant to DS. Mention the thesis and publication relevant to DS. If you publish in very good conferences/journals, mention it clearly what you implement.
4. Certifications - mention any certificates you have, like AWS certificates.
- Fit everything in one page (reviewers take only 1 min to read your CV. TRUST ME.)
- Put numbers in your Projects section. Increase latency by 20% vs. Increase latency. Which one is better?
- Put your Github and Medium and Kaggle/AICrowd profile on the top of your CV.
- For entry students, we know you don't have much work experience, but we expect you do MANY school projects that are interesting, so prepare a impressive Github
- Use LaTeX to make your CV. It shows you are good coders and willing to learn something new.
- Put Microsoft Word/Excel, etc., or very basic skills in your CV. It's like putting a taxi driver can drive.
- Do not say "I am fast learner", "I am curious", "I am critical thinkers". REVIEWERS DON'T CARE AND DON'T BELIEVE. REVIEWERS usually put a red flag in these CVs.
- No need to put your picture, your hobby, or your other non-relevant achievements. REVIEWERS DON'T CARE.
PS: If you have nothing in your Github, it's a good time to start. No projects in Github is VERY DIFFICULT TO GET A JOB. Do not do AIT projects like assignments, do it for your career future.
