Dare to Be Unique – You may increase your chance of getting hired and reduce the risk of being rejected. There are new styles that you can use depending on the industry or position you desire. Usually printed in black ink, resumes now come in a variety of colors, formats, and sizes. Ever seen one that is folded like a brochure or leaflet? You might think it wouldn't be possible. But aside from this interesting idea, it is more likely to catch the attention of employers. Folding in leaflet style is usually done by those who are applying in the marketing or advertising industry. If you are applying as a graphic designer, you can present one in comic layout. It's very unique, right? But the important details must still be there. How about as a copywriter? You can make use of a font that looks like it has been typed from a typewriter.
How Should You Use Those Free Resume Samples? You don't need to be afraid of the free resume samples that you might find on the internet. Check them out, by all means. But instead of copying text verbatim, put those samples to better use by studying the different formats (the style and structure of the resume, including the breakdown of categories) and the content – with respect to the way the author chose to phrase responsibilities, accomplishments, etc. Use resume samples as a source from which to glean ideas, and as an opportunity to immerse yourself in the language of the craft. Take the lessons learned from studying those samples, and apply those lessons with originality toward the crafting of your own document. By avoiding the look-alike text that every Tom, Dick and Harry has glommed onto, you're more likely to build a professional tribute to an actual individual, and subsequently attract the eye of a hiring official. And that's the goal.
They don't cost you anything: It is stating the obvious when you say that free resume templates don't cost you a thing, but this acquires special significance when you consider just how much money you will end up saving. A professionally written resume can be really steep and can set you back by as much as a hundred dollars! And going in for the cheaper ones may not produce the results that you want; you may wish you had done the job yourself and saved some money! Also, engaging a professional resume writer will require you to invest several hours of time in briefing them about your qualifications and then making adjustments/modifications to drafts.
