A cover letter resume sample is a great way to fight the writer's block that most of us have when we're writing a cover letter. A cover letter for your resume is extremely important because it's a means for you to actually sell yourself even before the hiring manager gets to your resume. Most hiring managers don't have the time to sift through all of the information in one single resume. Hiring managers in a big company can only allow a maximum of 2 minutes per resume, if it looks interesting enough. The cover letter is a great way to convince any recruiter that you're worth their time.
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.
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!
