Resume examples can give you ideas, but don't copy them word for word

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?

You can learn a lot from resume samples
