Free Sample Resumes

 

Writing your resume and getting ready to enter the job market is a big step. It can be a scary one, too. You may be asking how I make my resume catch my prospective employer’s attention. Where do I start?


Free sample resumes are one starting point. There are many sites online that offer free sample resumes from the sites that want you to upload your finished resume and use their job site for your search to the sites that want you to buy their resume writing software or use their resume writing consultants to make your resume writing easier. Many of the free sample resumes are excellent, some are not. You must use your own discernment here.

Sample Resume Format

First, find free sample resumes in the field or industry where you want to do your job search. If you are planning on sending hardcopy resumes out, then download several of the free sample resumes and print them out. Look to see which ones attract you. If you line them all up on a table which one would you naturally pick up. That’s probably the format for you to use.

There’s no rule that says you have to use just one of the free sample resumes. You can use several – one for overall formatting, another for overall style and yet another for wording.

Sample Resume Content

No matter how many free sample resumes you use, it’s still your content that is going to make the difference. What skills have you acquired in your life thus far? Some of these skills may have been in school, or in a club, or from your hobby. Others may have been acquired in after school jobs. Are you computer and internet savvy? Did you receive any awards? What other achievements do you have?

Answers to these questions will form the content for the style and format you’ve chosen when looking through the free sample resumes? This is your advertising brochure for yourself. It is important to keep in mind that employers are looking for the best and most valuable addition to their company. In sales terminology, they are looking to see how you will benefit their company and their goals. So, they care more about your achievements than about your duties or responsibilities.

Font choice is another important decision. And you will find differing opinions. Look at the free sample resumes you’ve downloaded. What do they use? Which one attracts you? Why? Do you think it will attract a prospective employer? Why?

Proofread Resume

The one thing free sample resumes cannot help you with is grammar and spelling. Carefully check your resume for parallel construction and grammar issues. Have someone else check it? Have another person check it. You cannot have too many people check it. You want this document to be absolutely error free.
