Resume Layout - Examples

One of the best ways to understand how to create the best resume layout, is by viewing some resume layout examples. We're fortunate enough to have some resumes that readers sent to us that we've made anonymous and added comments to.

The first resume layout example below is an architect's resume.



Notice the overall style of the resume layout is relatively artistic, which makes sense given that architecture involves a lot of design. Other types of professions that might benefit from this "designed" resume layout style are web designers, graphic designers, artists, and authors. The owner of this resume layout also does a very nice job in the experience section of highlighting what they did and what skills/knowledge they developed while doing it. We consistently try to stress the importance of identifying not just what you did in your resume layout, but how you did it and what you learned that will benefit potential employers.

Now let's take a look at a significantly different type of resume layout below.



This resume comes to us from someone in the engineering profession. As engineering is less artistic and more hard science, this resume layout lacks some of the "designed" feel from the earlier example. This reader took the time to edit the resume layout to give tips inside the document. Since he did much of our job for us, the main additional things to highlight are the general uncluttered layout and ease with which the resume layout can be scanned. Remember that employers will not spend minutes viewing your resume layout, only seconds. For this reason, it's critical that you use a resume layout that is very easy for the reader to quickly scan and see the important points that you want to highlight.

Thanks again to the brave readers who volunteered their resume layouts for us. Be sure to update your resume along the way as you read our site so you don't forget what you've learned. Make sure to check our other free advice at Resume Layout Advice.
