Resume Examples

These sample resumes are from applicants who won the chance to get an interview, often because they made the effort to build a master resume inventory.  All examples are disguised to protect identities.  Some of these folks had gone months and even a year without interviews or job offer.  

Did the improved resume make the difference?  No one knows for sure, yet we believe the improved resumes opened the door, and the applicants' greater confidence from this process certainly helped them beat the competition to win the job.

Notice how these resumes differ greatly in format, because each person picks what he or she likes.  Yet they all bring out numbers, frequencies, successes, knowledge growth, skills added or improved, and awards and compliments that verify that you do good work.  None of the resumes were done in overly fancy formats with heavy graphics.  The resumes were submitted online or on simple white or ivory paper.  We don't believe fancy graphics help very much.
