The resume samples in this group were written for a range of jobs that don’t fit into any of our other groups. We call it our Mixed Bag. Some of the job seekers are looking for freelance work, while others are looking for full-time or part-time jobs. Some are looking to build their own business or to use their resume to bring in new clients, while others are seeking higher level jobs within their current place of work.
Since every person’s goal is unique, each has chosen to use the chronological, functional, or hybrid resume format to bring out the skills they have to achieve their job target. As you’ll notice, the right format spotlights each person’s strengths and downplays his or her weak points. These weak points might include: employment gaps, unpaid work, or short-term jobs.
See if these resume samples help you think about how you can create your ownresume!
