"Your resume represents you as a professional on a piece of paper – it is your first impression with your future boss. Interestingly, resume writing is not a skill that is generally taught in school so once you are ready to start looking for a job, you are left to fend for yourself. In this age of technology, most people search the internet. There is an overabundance of information available online, yet very little of it is helpful and if you decide to take matters into your own hands, it is difficult to figure out where to start.

Start by putting together the content: work experience, summary of qualifications, achievements, education, keywords and any other important information that makes a powerful resume."

279 professional resume samples in Word FROM HLoom


"Your resume represents you as a professional on a 
piece of paper – it is your first impression with your 
future boss. Interestingly, resume writing is not a skill 
that is generally taught in school so once you are ready 
to start looking for a job, you are left to fend for yourself. 
In this age of technology, most people search the internet. 
There is an overabundance of information available online, 
yet very little of it is helpful and if you decide to take 
matters into your own hands, it is difficult to figure out 
where to start.

Start by putting together the content: work experience, 
summary of qualifications, achievements, education, 
keywords and any other important information that 
makes a powerful resume."

"Your resume represents you as a professional on a piece of paper – it is your first impression with your future boss. Interestingly, resume writing is not a skill that is generally taught in school so once you are ready to start looking for a job, you are left to fend for yourself. In this age of technology, most people search the internet. There is an overabundance of information available online, yet very little of it is helpful and if you decide to take matters into your own hands, it is difficult to figure out where to start.

Start by putting together the content: work experience, summary of qualifications, achievements, education, keywords and any other important information that makes a powerful resume."

279 professional resume samples in Word FROM HLoom


"Your resume represents you as a professional on a 
piece of paper – it is your first impression with your 
future boss. Interestingly, resume writing is not a skill 
that is generally taught in school so once you are ready 
to start looking for a job, you are left to fend for yourself. 
In this age of technology, most people search the internet. 
There is an overabundance of information available online, 
yet very little of it is helpful and if you decide to take 
matters into your own hands, it is difficult to figure out 
where to start.

Start by putting together the content: work experience, 
summary of qualifications, achievements, education, 
keywords and any other important information that 
makes a powerful resume."
