Your resume search should start with a clear idea of what it is that you are looking for. In the case of a resume, you are looking for a resume format or template which gives you a good idea of how to craft your own resume which will get you the interview you need to get the job you want. The good news is that there are plenty of good examples of resumes out there which fit into this category. The internet makes the resumes written by professional resume writers available for investigation by anyone with a computer to learn from. The bad news is that for every good resume your resume search turns up, you are likely to find ten or eleven bad ones. This means that ultimately the success of your is dependent on how well you have learned the concepts of good resume writing yourself.
As you undertake your search for the perferct resume remember that the purpose is to get you the interview. For that reason, each resume which you send out into the world should be functioning as a sales agent for you. If you imagine what you would expect a sales agent to do for you, you will get a clearer picture of how a resume should be structured. If a sales agent walked into the hiring manager's office, the first thing that he or she would do is say who they were there to represent. That's the address line. The second thing they would say is something about how you are qualified, interested and available to take the new position. That's the objective line.
Your Resume Search Checklist
As you continue your resume search, remember that the third thing that your sales agent would do is to begin telling the hiring manager how you are the best person for the job by recounting your job experience, education, personal characteristics and interests. They would not, however, go in there and begin randomly listing all these attributes of yours though. Instead, they would determine through research and questioning exactly what the hiring manager is looking for in a candidate for the position. Then the agent would make sure to present exactly those kinds of experiences, accomplishments, achievements and characteristics back to him or her. What's more, your sales agent wouldn't just list these attributes. He or she would give examples of accomplishments to make the point.
The resumes which you uncover should follow a similar format. If you find a sample resume which successfully accomplishes all these things, feel confident to use it as a basis for your own. You will have to make some significant changes, however, and personalize it as much as possible. Just like the sales agent, you will even have to do some research and find out what the hiring manager is looking for before you begin writing. If you follow these steps, however, you are sure to create a resume which you can send out with confidence.
