Sample Resumes

21 Flares 21 Flares ×

The challenge of using sample resumes is selecting samples that first of all, I have permission to use. Every sample on this site was written for a specific client and a specific target. If you chose to let me write your resume, it will be uniquely crafted with features you like. My work is constantly evolving and so the samples here are just a beginning point. One of the samples upholded in 2012 has already been viewed more than 50,000 times. Some of the viewers became my clients.

Resumes are all about strategy. The strategy comes into play in multiple ways. Content is always king but how your information is positioned is as important as how it is written.

The Design Resumes Project Roadmap

My project roadmap has become key to the beginning of my interaction with my clients. Our first appointment begins with a show and tell session where I use one resume to explain the sections of the resume, why they are there, what should change if you use the resume for a different purpose, and how to strategically position information. After that comprehensive overview, I walk through 5 or 6 or maybe more samples and point out the differentiating factors.

How I differentiate from other resume writers

Then we return to their Project Roadmap spreadsheet and complete it filling in their preferences for the resume format, resume sections, job search details, and track the services they have selected. This ensures that we have somewhere to check as we move forward in the process. My Design Resume process differs from other resume writers in that we are working in interactive sessions either in my Wausau office or via Skype or WebEx screen sharing. The client participates in interview-like sessions where we craft the content and secure the design together.

We start with a blank document

Each of the resumes I develop is unique to the person and starts with a blank document. I am as much a teacher and coach as I am a writer. The client grows in understanding of job search strategies,  resume writing, using social media tools such as LinkedIn as we work together to create and execute their strategic plan for the resume and their career marketing plan.

Throughout my career as a professional resume writer, I have written resumes for individuals in almost every career path imaginable: Information Technology, Non-profit Management, Healthcare, Sales, Sales Management, Marketing, Pastors, Corporate Executives, Manufacturing, Transportation, Teachers, Accounting, Administrative, Finance, and Conservation, just to name a few.

Each sample resume was designed and written by me, Julie Walraven, Certified Professional Resume Writer at Design Resumes. The samples are fictionalized versions of real resumes used with the permission of the clients involved. The identifiable details are changed but the content and formatting remains the same.
