Share the best resume formats in this thread. I have been trying to compile a list to do a bit of research on different outlines and formats to stack them up against each other and see which really performs the best.
For me it is simple. You start with your contact information at the top. I like my name it be larger and more noticeable. Follow this will both soft and hard skills bullet pointed neatly side by side. Below that, you will want to share your work experience then your education. Any other minor details can be left at the bottom.
One of my favorite formats that seems to do well for a lot of people is this one:
It keeps things neat and simple while providing the employer with enough information about you.
Marcos shared the one that I have used before with minor tweaking. It did really well for me and got me a few call backs. Just be sure to schedule meetings or interviews accordingly when you get several businesses calling you back!
The one shown and described are basically the same. I mean either way, you get something that is straight to the point, easy to read, and gives the employer all the information they need on you. You don't want to make it more than it should be.
