Professional Resume Samples

The resume examples listed below demonstrate our versatility, expertise, and ability to translate your value into words employers search for. We highlight the skills our clients enjoy using, rather than the abilities they’ve been forced to apply. These fictionalized resume samples were for job seekers targeting entry-level to executive positions in various occupations and industries. 

A well-written resume and cover letter should position you to get a job interview you’re passionate about instead of work you simply endure. We invite you to use these examples to make an informed decision about your resume content or our resume writing abilities. We caution against copying and adjusting them for your own use because it won’t represent your unique value.

Many resumes and CV curriculum vitae are scanned using ATS (applicant tracking systems). This means your job search documents will need to include the correct focused keywords to pass the screening process. The writing of accomplishments and showcasing the relevant skills in a resume is what makes resume writing an art.

Our clients enjoy our personalized service and exceptional documents. Check out our curriculum vitae (CV) and resume samples below and you decide, we think they speak for themselves.

We have specialized in writing resumes and cover letters for 16+ years, offering a variety of individual services and packages to match your needs. Either way, we wish you the best with your job hunt.
