Free Download - Example Resumes

This set of example Resumes is a free download from My Performance, put together to help
you to understand the differences between the main types of Resume:

1. Chronological Presents your job history and education in date order, normally
with the most recent first
2. Functional Focuses on skills and job related experiences first
3. Hybrid / Combination Resume Typically lists jobs and education in date order and includes
more detail about skills used for each job, as it is listed

Nowadays the hybrid / combination Resume is generally considered to be the most effective for packaging
and presenting your skills and experience in a structured and easy to understand format, that employers
can navigate to find the key information that they need to know about you.

As we all know, there is much more to writing an effective Resume than simply following a template. If you
want to find out more about what you can do to improve your Resume and increase your chances of getting
an interview for the job you’ve always wanted, download our Job Hunter’s Pack and Checklists now. The
pack is full of useful information, tools and techniques and over 200 practical tips about:

• Understanding job adverts
