There are so many different ways one can put together a resume that if you were to try to choose one you would be utterly confused. The net is full of places offering free sample resumes or resume templates and if you search for these it won't be long before you download hundreds of different resume samples and templates. The first step to writing your resume is research. Research using the net or in your nearest library and find out the different ways a resume can be put together. You will be able to find several downloadable sample resumes. Download some of them and use them. Make sure the resume samples follow certain basic requirements. The resumes must have a white margin all around the page and it must be divided into sections like personal information, education, job experience etc. This makes the resume scan able. This is important because the person who is doing the hiring is a very busy person and he can just spent only around 40 to 50 seconds on your resume. If it is scan able, he can get the required information easily and he will like you for that and possibly reward you with the job.
Copy-Pasting is a Big No-No. It's not advisable to copy another person's work. In writing your resume, you can only get ideas but not copy the whole thing. Editing can be a little okay but make sure that what you have is different from the original copy. Free resume samples have much to offer. Modify to create a copy that is personal and unique. Employers and recruiters have already seen hundreds of applications. Face the fact that they are bored in seeing almost the same terminologies, sentences, and phrases all over again. So instead of reading everything, they may just put your application aside. Always remember, ”First impressions last.” Surely, you wouldn't want your application to go to waste.
The good news is that the dozens of free resume samples and resume templates sites on the Internet provide a good selection of sample resumes for many occupational titles that you can view, take or leave. Some are certainly better than others. Some are in plain text so you can copy and paste the resume sample directly into your word processor. Other samples are in image format, allowing you to view only and require that you retype the information if you can use it. Other free resume samples sites go as far as offering a built-in program that allows you to upload the sample right into MS Word, formatted and all!
