Sample of simple resume
Putting together a resume that will get you phone calls for interviews is not a difficult process, but it can really make a difference when applying for a job, so having a sample of a simple resume to follow can really help you to craft your own resume. A resume does not have to be complicated, but it should contain all of the information that a potential employer needs to know about you to decide if you are the right person for the job. Here is our sample of a simple resume:

Of course, this is a very watered down sample of a simple resume. You can find all sorts of other samples of a simple resume at various web sites on the Internet. As long as you include the basic information about your job experience, your education, and any awards or organizations, you will have a simple, to-the-point resume. Ideally, your resume should be one page, but it can extend to two pages if you need to include additional information in order to get the job you are applying for. However, often, it truly is best to keep your resume simple and easy to read.

Look online for a sample of simple resume or even two or three. You can choose one you like or you can combine components of all of them to make a resume that best represents you, your skills, and your experience. With a strong resume, you can move to the top of the pile of applicants and compel a potential employer to call you for a job interview. After that, it is all up to you!
