Usage Guide and Writing Tips

The resume examples on this site will contain at least 3 basic sections: The introduction or summary; the body content or experience; and the supporting content such as education or affiliations. Most are written in reverse chronological order, but a few are written in a functional or hybrid format.

You may notice that the summary statement will be written differently than those in the experience section. The summary should be brief and is used to explain your overall career experience and tells the reader why you are qualified for the job position. Some samples use objectives, but a well-written summary can often generate a job interview and is helpful when hiring managers only glance at a resume.

The experience section is a description of specific duties and responsibilities you had at each job. These statements are more detailed and help support the content in the summary or objective.

Additionally, the experience content should highlight accomplishments written as action then result. Accomplishments demonstrate how you had a positive impact with your previous employers. It is ideal if you can quantify results (increase sales by $1 million or improved productivity by 50%). Below you will find a resume example using a standard professional layout.
