Use fill-in resumes to provide prospective employers with details about you, your education and your employment history. A detailed work history and special skills are also crucial to input on the resume.
Your contact information, such as you name, address, phone and email address, should be at the top of the resume, to allow potential employers to easily find out how they can contact you.
The experience section highlights your current and previous jobs. This is the area the provides the potential employer the type of companies you've performed work for and the duration you worked for each company.
The resume should also have a career summary section that allows you to elaborate on your work skills and other forms of experience relevant to the job you're applying for. This area provides the potential employer about your key strengths. If you have limited background in the area of work for which you're applying, highlight how previous skills and work experiences are transferable to a new job.
Ensure you add references in the reference section so potential employers can contact those references to follow up on your application. Choose friends and co-workers who can vouch for your work ethic, skills and experiences.
