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.
All that person is thinking about is the risk attached to you: is it more of a risk to let you work for a competitor, or is it more of a risk to have you working for them? Your resume will lead them towards one of those conclusions. But when we talk about 'functional resume samples', many people make the mistake of thinking that their resume must be objective, direct, businesslike, and devoid of personality. Nothing could be further from the truth. We call it a 'functional resume' because it performs its function, ie it gets them ringing you and wanting you to come in for interview. In fact, the image we often have of the word 'functional', in other words objective, logical, 'left-brained' is precisely the sort of resume that usually gets a big yawn and then gets trashed.
What ever job your going for it is quite possible you will be able to find a sample to help you. Read them all carefully and pick out bits you like from different resumes. Do not copy a complete resume, be creative and build your own resume. The samples are to be used as guides only. The best way to use resume samples is to choose a few different samples and pick areas in resume that you like. Make sure you choose a format that highlights your strengths and achievements. Remember the aim of a well written resume is to get you to the job interview. So take your time in selecting samples, you need to impress the prospective employer so the resume needs to be dam near perfect.
