Model Resumes

We're pleased to present our professional resume (and CV) samples, which showcase just a few of our most popular resume formats, layouts, and designs. While each resume is customized, we're delighted to share this very small sampling of possibilities.

Resume samples that fit a variety of employment situations. These sample resumes and templates provide job seekers with examples of resume formats that will work for almost every job seeker. Don't just copy a resume format that you like. Instead, choose your resume very carefully. Review sample resumes, then select a format that highlights your strengths and achievements. Remember, your resume needs to impress the hiring manager enough so you get the interview. That means it needs to be perfect
