The resume should be designed so that the most important information can be obtained with only a cursory scan. This is usually all the effort that your resume will initially receive. Only the most important information should be presented in your resume and it should be devoid of excessive verbiage. This makes it easier for the reader to obtain and remember the pertinent information. Work experience that is not related to the educational field should be summarized. This shows depth and breadth in your subject area. However, it should not be the main thrust. Your teaching and training experience should be the focus of your resume. You should also be sure to indicate your educational achievements including all honors and awards you have received. A teaching resume should be designed to reflect that you are well-established in your field and that you have the background and teaching experience that they may require. The purpose of the resume is to get your foot in the academic door. Thus, it is important that the resume be properly designed.
You don't know if the sample you're tempted to copy was even effective. Here's a question: if you copy text straight from a lousy resume, what does that make your resume? There's a reason for the old axiom, garbage in, garbage out. Unless you have it on good authority that some particular resume sample is a real gem, it's just as likely a lump of coal. The trouble is, many folks who aren't trained in resume writing simply can't tell just by looking at a resume if it satisfies all the criteria that hiring officials are looking for. Is it formatted for maximum benefit of the candidate's qualifications? Is it keyword rich? Does it demonstrate subtle branding techniques that set the candidate apart from his/her competitors? Is it sufficiently promotional without seeming biased?
Wouldn't it be great if you could search for a resume sample online and find an example of a resume that had everything you have done in your career just the way a resume writer would have written it? Okay, so you're not that unrealistic. You know we're not living in a perfect world. All you really want is some inspiration and to find a few good sentences to borrow to make your life easier. Ten years ago, the prospect of finding a good resume sample online was a daunting task, and to a large extent still is with the exception of a few. Many of the websites offering resume samples charged a non-refundable fee for the privilege before seeing the product. These sites are still around, but have some stiff competition – free resume sample sites such as Sample Resume Templates that offer hundreds of free resume samples for many job titles. When you think about it, why would anyone pay for 250 resume samples when they only need a few good ones? This is obviously a better resource for a resume writer than it is for a job seeker.
