About this Resume Sample
This chronological resume gives the reader a clear sense of where Tony (not his real name) has been in his career and what he has achieved in each of his jobs. A few key points to note:
- Since he does not have a college degree, and the type of job he is looking for does not require one, Tony has left the Education section off the resume completely. If he had listed his high school diploma, it would have drawn attention to the fact that he does not have a degree.
- He’s kept his achievement statements short and to the point. This shows respect for his reader, who likely has a busy schedule and a pile of resumes to read.
- Because all of his work experience has been in Boston, Tony could enhance his standing as a candidate by adding something personal about his move to San Francisco in his cover letter or cover email to employers. But there’s no need to refer to it in his resume.
