Sample Resume | How to Write an Effective Resume

   Sample resume: A well written resume highlights professionalism and effectively communicates to potential employers your career focus, past experiences, education, qualifications and skills related to the content and functions of the position you apply for. An effective resume is one that communicates to employers that you are the most qualified to fill their specific need.

       Although your resume may not be a basis for employer in making their decisions, it is important to put in mind that a well written resume gets you one step closer to your aspired position by getting you an interview. During your job search, it is very important to review some sample resumes to study them to learn how to effectively promote yourself and your credentials to prospective employers. A well written sample resume is focused on content and composition that highlights strengths and career goals.


Sample Resume – What to Include

What you include in your resume will paint an image of you that will often lead your interviewers’ questions. Prepare to talk about them and explain everything clearly.  A resume has the following parts:


1. Identifying Information:

  • Your name,
  • Present and Permanent Addresses,
  • Landline and cell phone number,
  • E-mail address.

Please take note that:

Email addresses must be appropriate for work and related transactions. The best way to format your professional email address is to include your whole name or a combination of initials and surname. For example:

bill.gates@gmail.com, or bgates@gmail.com.

Avoid indicating an informal email address that reflects unprofessionalism such as:


Other details such as marital status, gender, religion, height, weight, political affiliation, and other similar information can be omitted.

2. Summary of Qualifications:

     On some sample resumes, many applicants include a summary statement, a short list of key strengths and experiences, at the beginning of their resume, instead of a “Career Objective” so employers can get a snapshot of their strengths in the first few lines. But on some sample resumes, usually, “Career Objective” will do the work as long as its contents are straightforward to the position applied for.


3. Education:

  • Your institution’s name
  • Degree(s)
  • The month and year you expect to or did receive your degree.
  • Major and Minor.
  • Include special programs of study, such as study abroad
  • Include honors and awards.
