Resume Writing Samples



Before you review our sample resumes, please note: It’s never a good idea to copy a resume template. Instead, use our sample resumes to firm up ideas on how to design a resume that’s descriptive of your experience, skills, and talents and specific to the career field, company or job you want

Reverse Chronological Resume

In reverse chronological format, this sample is the most common format and typically the one preferred by most employers. Although the format is common, we’ve used creative style on our sample to help set if apart from those of other candidates.

Skills Resume

The skills resume format in single column informal style. The skills resume format works best when your work experience is limited but your skills qualify you for the job.

Notice that although the resume is in a single column style, we have used table cells to separate text and balance the page for easier reading.

Functional Resume

The functional resume format is best used to conceal gaps in employment history. For instance, in our sample rather than put a proprietary business in work history, the candidate has chosen to add it to a list of professional skills.
