Every position for which you apply will relate directly to certain coursework you have had and not to other courses.
You cannot just say that you are strong in research methodologies related to the position. You must “show” this expertise with specific evidence.
Your CV may not be as long as those of experienced candidates. But you can still make is compelling and engaging, if you spend some time in careful reflection on all that you have really accomplished in your graduate program.

Are you good at communication? Provide an example of how this has helped you in work or on your course.
