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?
You also need to consider the information that you put into your resume, it is not advisable to copy what sounds good in the resume samples you found. Anything you put on that resume should be the truth. You may exaggerate a bit but make sure you can deliver once hiring managers or employers wants proof. We surely don't want to be caught lying about something even before employment and most especially after employment. Do not forget to give complete and updated information in your resume most especially your contact numbers. It is of no use and everything you have worked for will be in vain if the hiring managers are unable to contact you for an interview. This common mistake actually sets off hiring managers when after they have chosen you over a hundred applicants and only ending up unable to contact you. And finally when they are able to get hold of you, always answer in a cordial manner. The phone call is actually the first step in your interview. They may ask a few questions during the phone call so always remember what you have written in your resume and not the ones written in the resume samples you found.
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.
