About This Resume Sample
Wendi (not her real name) has had a great career so far, working as a Chef at places as impressive as The White House. She has also catered many company events and private parties. Now she would like the job security of being part of a larger company, and to use her skills to lead a department. Let’s see what she has done to make her resume stand out.
- Wendi provides a very clear and concise Objective statement, in which she tells us the level of the job and the type of setting where she is now wanting to work.
- She uses the hybrid or combination format in a slightly different way. Wendi first lists the skill heading, and then tells us where she was working and what her job title was when she did each task. This gives credence and strength to her resume, and is useful when using the functional format.
- Moving the dates of her work history to the bottom of the resume helps Wendi to arrange her achievements in the section above in any order she needs to, in order to show the reader how well she can do the job she is seeking. Using this format also gives her the option of changing the order later if she wants to apply for a different type of job!
