There is nothing like the power of resume examples when you're trying to get the wording and layout right for your next resume. Browsing our sample resumes is like a jumpstart for your own resume writing!
I don't know about you, but when I'm first trying to figure out how to write something, it can be helpful to look at what other people have done. You can get ideas on wording, layout and even resume format by really dissecting various examples of resumes.
Of course, you have to be careful about using examples. You don't want to just copy them word for word. It's also important that your resume be completely personalized to you, your career path and the jobs for which you're applying.
Not every resume example you run into here or elsewhere on the Web is going to be the appropriate resume format or whatever for your situation. So use resume examples wisely, OK?
With the help of our partner, the professional resume writers at ResumeEdge.com, I've pulled together a collection of sample resumes from to give you that little boost of creative ideas.
Click on the thumbnails below to visit the type of resumes that are the best match for you. Resume examples are organized by both format and by career, so you should be able to find something you can use as a jumping off point for your own resume writing.
As you review these various examples, be sure you take particular note of the way they've worded their resume objectives or their summary of qualifications. This is the most important part of the resume, so it's crucial that you learn how to do it right. You'll also want to get ideas for how to describe your various skills and accomplishments.
Hopefully, once you've looked at a number of our resume samples, you'll be ready to begin work on your own resume!
A word of caution, once again though... although resume examples can be a great learning tool, teaching you to understand how a resume should be put together and look... or supplying you with ideas about how to word things.
But at some point, you have to bite the bullet and actually start writing your own resume, so don't spend too long here in this section of the site!
