First, concentrate on your above-the-fold details. Start with a simple professional summary. It should tell prospective employers who you are and focus on the things that set you apart from other applicants in the pool. If you can tie in keywords from the job description, that can also help you get noticed. Next, list your top skills. As you are in the beginning stages of your career, it's a good idea to list all the software programs, such as C++ or Redux, that you have mastered. This gives employers a sense of the breadth of your knowledge.
Next, detail your work history and list your educational background. List any relevant experience you have, even if it was a volunteer project. Whenever possible, quantify results your efforts brought about rather than just listing tasks you performed. Add your education at the bottom to demonstrate formal training in the field.
