Sample Resumes

Sometimes being able to take a look at an actual resume can help you figure out how to format your own, how to describe experience, or what kinds of things you might include. Be careful, though, not to borrow too much from a sample–if you’re using words you don’t know or not describing experiences accurately, it’s bound to come through in an interview when you’re asked to talk about things in more depth.
