Anatomy of a Resume
Here is a conventional resume example on how to put together a resume for any industry.
The header of a resume needs to contain the information a recruiter would need to know in order to contact you. It should be just your basic information in a simple format, which sets the tone for the entire resume.
The profile of the resume, also called the Qualifications Summary, Career Objective, Professional Profile, is where you sell yourself. Use the profile to promote yourself and let employers know what you have to offer and how you can be a great asset to the company. After the profile comes your Skills Summary where you show you’ve got all the skills needed to do the job.
The experience section is where you stand out by highlighting your work accomplishments. Use it to attract the attention of a recruiter. This section could also be called Employment, Work History, Related or Relevant Experience. You can list any internships, volunteer work, or other unpaid positions you have worked.
An employer will definitely screen through education sections on resumes. Make the most of it by including coursework, certifications and study abroad, particularly if you are a fresh graduate or are still in school and attempting to land your first job.
The other section is your last chance to give your resume a boost if you don’t have a lot of experience. Use it to emphases any recognitions, awards, hobbies, or any other relevant information that relates to the job you are applying for. It’s recommended to include a Skills Summary where you show you’ve got all the skills needed to do the job.
