Free Resumes

 

Well of course they are, aren’t they? Not necessarily. Free resumes can be a guide to writing your own resume.


Free Resumes Search

And there are tons and tons of free resumes on line. A quick search will come up with over 92,000 returns. Not enough time in the day to read all those free resumes.

Resumes Time

And that’s the point exactly. While the free resumes don’t cost you dollars, they do cost you time. So you need to make wise choices of what and where to read. Make some decisions up front before you start looking at free resumes.

What format or style do you want? In most situations the combination or hybrid resume works best. It gives you the opportunity to sell yourself up front and to also include a chronological work history. Functional resumes should be used as a last resort when you need to showcase your skills but don’t have a solid work history.

Another way to narrow your search before you start looking at free resumes is by only looking for those free resumes that are relevant to the positions and the industry for which you are applying. There’s a different focus if you are applying for an executive position or a sales position. Teacher’s resumes are different from systems analyst resumes. Finding the free resumes that are most applicable to you will save you lots of reading time. Isolate several that you like and print them out.

Now your analysis of these free resumes beings. How is the summary worded? What words are they using? How is the whole thing formatted? You may want to print out several different formats and lay them side by side on the table. Which of the free resumes are you most drawn to? Which one do you want to pick up? The name of this resume game is having the person who is reading your resume be drawn to it and want to pick it up. Is it the one with the most white space? White space can be very inviting.

Once you’ve written you own resume place it on the table beside the other free resumes. How does it look? Are you happy with it? What needs adjusting?

Be sure you do a thorough check for grammar, spelling and parallel construction. Errors can get you tossed out of the running quickly. Have several people read your resume. Read it out loud to yourself. Reading it out loud will assist you to find sentences that are too long or that are just too wordy.

Free resumes can be an excellent guide if you focus your efforts so that you don’t spend a lot of unnecessary time.
