Entry Level Resume Sample

BEFORE
AFTER

This client was a recent graduate of a Master’s program from a university in Spain. Her goal was to acquire a job stateside that allowed her to draw from unique international experiences. Since she had just completed her Master’s degree and none of her work experience was directly related to her target career goals, we focused on things she’d accomplished during her school career. Then, in the Professional Experience section, we drew attention to some soft skills.


Chronological Resume Sample

AFTER

This customer had spent time working in call centers and had been in the Navy. The resume he presented barely took up 3/4 of a page. It needed to be optimized with the right keywords and there needed to be the inclusion of some basic resume sections. Even though his military experience was more than 10 years ago, it was called out in its own section as the skills he obtained during his time were supremely relevant to his career goals.


Chronological Resume With Stacked Employment Sample

This customer had been a long-time and loyal employee of a major aeronautics firm. However, the time came for her to find a position somewhere else. In order to fully highlight her extensive career at one company, her resume was written with a technique called STACKING. This allows hiring managers to see, at a glance that she is not only loyal but is willing to take on new roles and responsibilities within a given company.
