Are you looking for resume samples? You should be, for a number of reasons:
- Resume samples show you different formatting ideas – resume formats that are acceptable.
- Resume samples show you how to structure phrases and sentences on your resume.
- Resume samples show you what sections go where, or how long sections of a resume should be.
- Resume samples give you wording ideas – you know to start a bullet with an action verb – see the resume samples for ideas of STRONG words to use.
When I started my job search I wasted a week looking for a six year old resume that I pieced together. I really should have looked for resume samples, written by resume experts (like those at Career Resumes), and just started from scratch. Even if you decided to outsource your resume to a resume writing service, what you gain from the experience of trying to write your own resume will be invaluable.
