REFERENCES : Free Samples of Resumes

References are not usually given on the resume itself. But a prospective employer needs to know that you have references who may be contacted if necessary. All you need to include is a single sentence at the end of the resume…. "References are available upon request" or even simply, "References available." Have a reference list ready. Your interviewer may ask to see it! Contact each person on the list ahead of time to see whether it is all right for you to use him or her as a reference and be sure to inform your references of the positions for which you are applying. Have a candid conversation with them about the types of things you think the prospective employer might be looking for in an employee. This way, the person has a chance to think about what to say before the call occurs and this helps ensure that you will obtain the best reference possible.

WRITING YOUR RESUME : Free Samples of Resumes

Now you have gathered the information for each section of your resume. It’s time to write it out in a way that will get the attention of the reviewer - hopefully your future employer! The language you use in your resume will affect its success, so you must be careful and conscientious. To begin, you're going to translate the facts you have gathered into the active, precise language of resume writing. You will be aiming for a resume that keeps the reader's interest and highlights your accomplishments in a concise and effective way.

Resume writing is unlike any other form of writing because you're trying to convey drive and results and the work you do every day in just a few short sentences. In addition, although your seventh-grade composition teacher would not approve, the rules of punctuation and sentence building are often completely ignored. Instead, you should try for a functional, direct writing style that focuses on the use of verbs and other words that imply action on your part. Writing with action words and strong verbs characterizes you to potential employers as an energetic, active person, someone who completes tasks and achieves results for his or her work. Resumes that do not make use of action words can sound passive and stale and won't be effective or get the attention of any employer, no matter how qualified the applicant. To write an active and dynamic resume, you'll need to choose words that display your strengths and demonstrate your initiative.

The work experience section is perhaps the most important section of your resume and you should pay particular attention to its construction. One helpful way to build the work experience section is to make use of your actual job description - the written duties and expectations your employers had for a person in your current or former position. Job descriptions are rarely written in proper resume language, so you will have to rework them, but they do include much of the information necessary to create this section of your resume. If you have access to job descriptions for your former positions, you can use the details to construct an action-oriented paragraph. Often, your human resources department can provide a job description for your current position.

In addition, when writing your resume, if you are applying for more than one job, you may need more than one resume because you will have to highlight different skills for different jobs. For example, you may be equally qualified for two fairly different jobs, and each is seeking a candidate with certain skills. To make yourself the most appealing to each employer you'll need to allot more of your valuable resume space to the specific skills and abilities in demand for that employer and downplay others of less importance. To do this effectively, you'll need to make sure you've thoroughly researched the job description as well as the businesses and companies to which you're applying.
