How to Use a Resume Template:

A resume template can help in writing or rewriting your resume. It is always useful to compare with resume templates and samples to get an idea of what a resume should/or could look like. Use a resume template or a sample as a starting point for creating your own resume. Insert your information in the resume template, then add or amend and edit it to personalize your resume, so it highlights your skills and abilities.

Resume Samples:

Before you start work on your resume, review free resume samples (available in Jobs-Search websites) that fit a variety of employment situations. These sample resumes and templates give examples of resume formats that will work for almost every job seeker. Do not just copy a resume example that you like. Instead, choose your resume very carefully to match your job search and which highlights your strengths and achievements.

Types of Sample Resumes:

  • Chronological Resume: Gives out positions held, experience and qualifications attained year-wise.
  • Functional Resume: Details functional experience as per Job-description and responsibilities carried out.
  • Mini Resume: A mini resume contains a brief summary of your career highlights and qualifications to give an overview of your accomplishments rather than a full length resume.
  • Combination-Functional & Chronological Resume: Briefly elucidates ones Functional experiences, chronologically.


Whatever the type of resume sample that is utilized, great care must be taken to ensure that it matches your job-quest and skills instead of appearing as if it was blindly copied.
