Sample resume
There are many ways that you can put together a resume, and having a sample resume to look at can really help you as you are putting together your own resume. We have limited space in this article, so we can't give you a complete sample resume to look at, but we can show you a few sections and how best to put them together. For example, here is what the job experience section should look like:


August, 2005 - Present XYZ Corporation; Green Bay, Wisconsin
Job Position: Sales Representative
Job Duties: Responsible for procuring new accounts, servicing existing accounts
and insuring quality control for all products sold

Received 2006 Sales Person of the Year Award

Of course, you can jazz things up in this sample resume section by using bold and changing the font to look like you want it to. However, this is a good guideline to follow for the job experience section. As a note, you should never go back more than the last three jobs you previously held for space constraints. Your resume should ideally be one page long, but sometimes it needs to extend to two pages. You do not want to overload sections with unnecessary information. Here is an idea of how the Awards and Achievements section might look on a sample resume:


1997 - Received Outstanding Customer Service award given to the person who had the most positive feedback
when taking customer service calls in the call center.
1998 - Received Young Careerist award from Business and Professional Women club based on my speech "How
and why Young Women Can Succeed in the Business World"
2001 - Awarded Employee of the Year for formulating and implementing a new computer program that improved
customer service by 67 percent in one calendar year.

When you look at a sample resume, use it as a guideline for your own information. Be positive and highlight all of your achievements and job duties. You can find all sorts of sample resumes to look at on the Internet at many web sites dedicated to the advancement of professionals in the business world. Use a sample resume to best represent your skills, abilities, and experience that will help you get the job you are looking for.

Your resume is the first thing a potential employer will see, and you will want it to look as good as possible and represent you as a potential employee. Having a sample resume to refer to - especially one that is proven to be effective - can be an invaluable tool in your job search and get you the interview that can ultimately lead to the job!
