Free Sample Resumes
Learning how to write a resume isn't easy. There's more to it than just listing your work history. A good resume is one that remains factually accurate, but also demonstrates your understanding of the work you did and the impact it had on the bigger picture.
For example, if you're a web developer that modified an existing application, your resume can be improved by explaining the purpose of the modification. If you're in the business of analyzing business processes, you want to make sure that you describe the impact your analysis had and not just describe the analysis you did.
For my own learning, I hold on to resumes that people send me. They're all free, so why not? Each resume has the potential to show me something that I should, and equally important, something I shouldn't do. And because these are real resumes rather than samples that someone made up, I find them more valuable.
I've posted some of these resumes on this site. I tried to be faithful to the original formatting, but these resumes often came to me in text format so I had to make some educated guesses sometimes.
