well, I personally like the one page CV format... it looks nice and its easier to navigate for the one trying to take the job interview etc..
search online and you will find templates for those; or what I do is just make one in MS PowerPoint... set the slide size to A4 size page and design one on it..

here are a few samples I had saved earlier on my computer..

yeah but s/he has internship/projects experience.. also they can mention workshops they have attended, things they have done to groom themselves.. also one can showcase their leadership and teamwork skills by mentioning societies and organizations they have worked in and in what capacities etc...

for instance a dear friend of mine had helped some staff in bookkeeping of an Islamic organization so he wrote this in his CV:
"Social Mentoring: I have recently volunteered to support a Non-profit Organization in management of its finance function. This includes training staff with adequate accounting skills along with development of an in-house financial reporting system."

he had made this CV for a teaching position that's why his focus is on mentoring...
one can even discuss their aims and ambitions..
but remember if someone good interviews u, they use these points for discussion so write stuff keeping that in mind... like when I interview fresh graduates.. and their CV mentions some project, I'd read about it and discuss what was it about and try to see their knowledge and ability to explain etc... Or hobbies are also a good place to start conversations...
