Need some resume feedback

Can someone please give me some feedback on my resume please?? I have completed a few internships and would like to go in to banking.


For some reference, I am at an Australian target university and have ~ 3.5 GPA (USA Scale). I would really appreciate feedback on my resume as I have little to no knowledge of the banking industry.

Some thoughts:

Employment:

- convert paragraphs into page width sentences. Shows that you can both be concise and forces you to focus on the absolute highlights only.

- I'd remove "remote" and replace with the office you were working for. Some may contest that this is lying, but as long as your working for the location I think this is okay as almost everyone is working remote/hybrid now.

- Noticed some bullets have colons in-between points. If you need room, adjust with custom spacing. The tighter, the better

Education:

- Just masters, no undergrad?

Skills:

- The soft skills I wouldn't put. Takes away space from the rest. Also resume will only get you into the interview based on achievement and networking. You have to show these skills when asked behavioral questions

Certifications:

- Usually reserved for securities exams, CPAs, CFAs, or courses (WSP). So who's the issuer of these certs? That should be listed and emphasized

Interests,

- Remove anything that someone under the age of 15 would have. Need to know why you'd be cool to work with for 80+ hrs before speaking with you. 

- Personal finance is not an interest. Elaborate on gym, maybe health and nutrition, or consistent weightlifting. Music, elaborate, genre? Pottery, favorite thing to create?

- Keep squash that's unique and a convo starter
