MS Word has a few templates that will help you get a basic structure. Start with a Personal Profile, or About Me section, then flow to your education and extra curricular activities, your work history including work experience placements, your skills/hobbies/attributes, and your references. It is advisable to put "available on request" for your references, but you could always include a letter of recommendation to support your CV, especially if writing your first one, as you might not have very much experience yet to bulk it out with.

If this is your first cv then you must include some basic ponts and keep as simple as you can with relevancy.
Don't write some fake experience.

Some words you ought to incorporate into your CV in view of input from many enrollment specialists around the globe

1. Numbers

"In the event that you need to demonstrate that you're results situated and persevering, share the numbers. As is commonly said, the evidence is in the pudding," as indicated by employment mentor Angela Copeland. For instance, instead of expressing that you're a "fantastic computerized advertiser," demonstrate it. Say something that mirrors your real outcomes, for example, 'Developed online deals and income by 200% in one year.'

2. Updated

Incorporate verbs that show authority and change. "'Overhaul' shows critical thinking aptitudes and also the capacity to plan for an impressive future picture and lessen prepare wasteful aspects."

3. Propelled

In the event that platitudes are a no-no, basic yet intense words are your go-tos, as per Glassdoor feature writer Anish Majumdar. Propelled, unraveled, changed, and advanced are all cases of activity verbs that make you look great without falling back on banalities.

4. Modernized

"Modernized" alongside "considered and transformed" driving up the competitor's story, indicating how they've enhanced, imagined and changed their workplaces, and hence, picked up income, client development, notoriety, and so on footing for their organization.
