We feel every resume has its own Distinctive Navigated Achievements (DNA). When translated it means, everyone has their own individual course/path to their achieved goals and accomplishments. We all takes a different path to get us to where we are and who we are now, and that needs to be reflected in your resume. Everyone’s resumes will be different, there may be similarities but two are never the same.
As we were creating our website we were asked by many; why would we supply so much information on how to write your own resume and why would we give samples of resumes that can be copied? If you read our page what makes us tick, it is stated clearly, It’s simple, we are truly passionate about what we are doing and we honestly want to help people find that job/career they want and deserve. Over the years as hiring managers, we’ve seen a majority of resumes poorly crafted. We want all visitors to CareerThinker.com to leave knowing more on how to succeed with their job search than before they visited us. Also, would you even purchase any resume writing service without seeing some samples?
Take some time to review these resume samples to get an idea of what think works for you. Feel free to print any of these samples as a reference if you write your own or when we write your resume. Remember, there is a lot more to resume writing than just the visual aspect, there are industry/profession key words, impact bullet points, building and highlighting your market value, branding you and your career path, and connecting to the reader.
