  Example Resumes - The following are example resumes and a cover letter

All resumes have similar components in three, common formats.

Example Resumes:

  • Chronological 1
  • Chronological 2
  • Presents job history and education by date. It's organized in reverse order by employer, with the most recent first.
  • Functional 1
  • Functional 2
  • Also called a skills resume, it's a summary of qualifications typically organized by education, experience and skills, with little emphasis on employer history.
  • Combination
  • Also called a hybrid resume, it's a composite of the two above.
  • Student/New Graduate
  • This is an example of a resume that a student or new graduate could have.
    Example Engineering Technology Resumes:
  • Chemical Engineering Technology
  • Civil Engineering Technology
  • Computer Technology
  • Electronic Engineering Technology
  • Information Technology
  • Graphic Design
  • Example Cover Letter

    Resume formats (and fancy sample resumes, like those above) are only guidelines and there are an endless number of variations. Which format is best and in which order the components appear depends on your career situation. But always place your contact information first, followed by your objective.

    Now that you know about resumes and have seen our example resumes, its time to check out our Interview Tips.

      Your related experience and education are the two most important parts of your resume. So make sure your resume is clearly labeled, neat, easy to read, and well organized just like our example resumes above.
