Resume Samples for Your 2022 Job Application

Resumes are like fingerprints. No two are alike. This makes sense when considering the number of variables when creating a professional resume.

Not only does a resume reflect a person’s unique skills and experience, but it should also be customized to the job or industry being pursued.

Adding to this complexity, there are all kinds of mixed signals and advice from different people about resumes. How long they should be, what sections to include/exclude, whether you should include a photo…and so on, and so on.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was some way to cut through this chaos? To know exactly what the current standards are for resume writing. It would be even better if there were examples of what recruiters in specific industries want to see from job applicants. That would make creating a professional resume a whole lot easier.

More importantly, up-to-date resume samples capture present-day best practices for resume writing. In other words, years of research and expertise are built-in for you to follow and apply to your resume.

One of the most important considerations for a resume is the overall resume format. There are three resume formats: chronological, reverse chronological,  and functional. The format you choose will depend on both where you are at in your career and the industry you work in.

In a chronological format, there is a greater emphasis on skills than in the functional format, which emphasizes experience. The combined format gives equal weighting to both these sections, with some flexibility.

The examples provided below all use the combined format, even for jobs that are very “skills-oriented” or technical. If you’re an architect, a data analyst, or a computer scientist, it’s important to showcase your work history alongside your vast skillset.

We encourage you to explore the following resume examples developed by our team at Creative Resumes. We’ve developed them for dozens of professions in all kinds of industries: from customer service to engineering. And we will keep updating the list each week with new professions/examples.

Resume Examples by Field of Experience

⦁ Attorney Resume sample

As someone applying for the position of attorney at law, you should always focus on your educational experience so that those recruiting know you have a relevant degree and expertise to be applying for. Make sure your resume is in reverse chronological order, so it is easy to read and is instantly attention-grabbing, as your latest roles will be focused on more than the earlier ones. It is also always ideal to keep your resume to one page because it shows your ability to communicate in lesser words effectively and keeps the recruiter engaged throughout so that all the parts that need attention are getting it.

Business Resume Example

You should follow a simple and elegant layout that is not too overcrowded with random information. Each section should highlight your personality and earned credentials for employers to see.
