First and foremost, you need to provide the name in the middle, followed by your contact address, your phone number, and your email ID. In case you have a LinkedIn account, you can provide it over here as well.

Then you start writing the main sections.

1. Areas of interests

Coming to the first important section is the area of interest. Choosing the areas of interest is very crucial. Choose the main interest that you are applying for and then write other related topics. You can write about different interests if you know how to relate them to the main interest. They have also to be related somehow to the past studies that you have done or the past subjects that you have read.

The following example is for a Ph.D. applicant's resume.

2. Education

Then you need to give details regarding your education chronologically backward. You should include the specialization, the department, the year of obtaining the degree, and the GPA. Start by including details about your master's and then your bachelor's.

  • B.Tech (Manufacturing Science & Engineering)
           University of Technology | Tuscan, Arizona   [2009]
           CGPA: [8.54/10]

3. Publications & conferences

Make sure to include at least a conference, if not a paper or a journal article.

4. Projects and training undertaken

Then you give details regarding your project and training undertaken. Write the title of the project that you worked on, a brief description, and future scope. You can structure the section like follows:

  • Project 1: Title 
           Future scope

This will give you confidence considering that not only you have worked and become experienced but also have some understanding so that you can think about the things which will be of practical impact or which will be practically helpful for development in the future.
