Resume Samples / ExamplesView a few samples of multiple types of resumes
The samples below are only a few examples of my previous work. Your resume will be written from scratch, based on your goals and unique career background, but you are welcome to request a format similar/identical to one of the samples below if you wish. Once you place an order, I will call you for a consultation regarding your background and goals. At this time I will explain the strategy I recommend, and we can go from there!
Types of Resumes
A chronological resume is what you imagine when you think about a “normal” resume. This type of resume lists your experience from newest (at the top) to oldest (at the bottom), and includes details about each job you’ve held under each company you’ve worked for. Most resumes are written in this style, including resumes tailored for federal and state government jobs.
A functional resume eliminates repetitive (or irrelevant) information by listing all your experience under a central section, which on the Customer Service sample above is titled “Core Competencies.” This style/strategy helps shorten the resume, focuses on your most relevant skills, and is helpful if you need to minimize employment gaps or shift the focus of your resume away from irrelevant employment time periods.
Hybrid resumes, such as the Sales/Management sample above, are a combination of chronological and functional resumes. Your main experience will be listed in a central section, similar to a functional resume, and your unique information or achievements will be listed under each company, like a chronological resume. This resume strategy helps you showcase your accomplishments while simultaneously minimizing repetitive or irrelevant information.
Below you will find a comprehensive list of industries that I have experience writing resumes for. Keep in mind, many times some industries will be classified within other industries, so if you do not see your field on the list, it is probably included in one of the other items already listed.
