There are many resume samples on the internet that will help applicants to see what a correct professional resume should look like. Those can be copied and be printed for applicants to study. However, the chance that some resume writing companies
gives to people are being abused. When they got a resume sample that is fit to the job they are looking for, they will just copy and paste is in their word document and create a little changes so they won't feel the stress of resume writing. What they don't know is that they are hurting their chance for getting the job. Kim Issacs said that resume samples should inspire applicants not define what they are.
Louise Kursmark, career consultant gave some tips to make the best use of resume samples:
1. Look for resumes in your field and mine them for industry-specific activities, terms and accomplishments. Have you done similar things? Is your skill set comparable?
2. After you've reviewed resumes in your field, peruse resumes across fields to understand how to vary the use of action verbs and get a feel for what makes a powerful accomplishment statement. Then write your own statements, as appropriate, modeled on the ones you like best.
3. Look for innovative formats and striking presentation, such as charts and tables. Can you include a strong visual that will immediately grab the reader's attention?
4. Dip into numerous resumes to get a feel for good writing, concise yet compelling language and high-impact accomplishments. Work on your own resume with those examples in mind.
5. Read your revamped resume with a critical eye to make sure it reflects you. Will the image you present in person be congruent with your resume?
