A resume is a document which includes education, experience, skills, and accomplishments that is used to apply for jobs. Before you start work on your resume, review free samples that fit a variety of employment situations. These examples and templates provide job seekers with resume formats that will work for every job seeker.

Review resume examples, choose a type of resume that highlights your strengths and achievements, review what information to include in your resume, and review a typical resume format before you start working on your own resume. Remember, your resume needs to impress the hiring manager enough so you get the interview. That means it needs to be perfect.
