The free sample resume format/ template below can be used to create your own resume. 

For a free resume review or to use my resume writing services, please email a copy of your resume to info@kmd-solutions.com  

Whether you are an executive, dentist, teacher, project manager, business consultant, computer programmer or an administrative assistant, you can follow the same format as the sample application letter format below & use it as a template. 

We prefer to focus more on the presentation and content of the resume than on the resume format/ template. Do not fold or staple your resume. Use bulleted sentences rather than paragraphs. This will make it easier to read your resume. Avoid abbreviations in your resume, even for common words. Don't include "Hobbies" on a resume. Don't include current or previous salary details or salary expectations on a resume. Proofread your resume. It is imperative to catch and correct all spelling and grammatical weaknesses and mistakes and correct them.

Sample resume format: 

    Your name

    Your address (can be a post office box)

    Your contact phone number (s) (it is a good idea to include your cell phone number -do not include your work number if you don't wish to be contacted there)

    Your email address (it is best to use an email name and address that sound professional)

    Summary

    A brief concise statement describing you, your strongest skills, experience and your strengths.

     

    Professional Experience

    • Start with your present/ latest employer.

    • List all employment (up to 15 years, concentrating on the experience that is relevant to the positions that you are currently seeking & your latest relevant experience)

    • List the name of the Company,

    • Location,

    • A brief description of the company (eg, third largest air conditioning company in the world),

    • Size of company

    • Your title (if more than one position held with the same company list each one separately)

    • Dates of employment

    • Highlight your accomplishments and achievements

    • Use strong resume action verbs & phrases such as managed, developed, initiated, coordinated…

    • Include cost savings ( for example saved the company $30,000 or reduced the cost of a product by 5 %)

    • Include responsibilities

    • Repeat the above for each position  

     

    Education

    For the sample resume format for a recent graduate or if the education is more relevant than the experience to the job you are applying for, place this section above the professional experience section. If not, leave the sample resume format in this order.

    • Name of University/ TAFE/ College

    • Location 

    • Degree / Diploma/ Certificate

    • Graduation date/ still attending (expected date of graduation)

    • For about to graduate students and for recent graduates, it is recommended that you also list your major courses

     

    Honors and awards

    • List any awards or distinctions you received, such as dean's list or Phi Beta Kappa. This is impressive on resumes for entry level positions.

    • This section can be included as a sub-section within the "Education" section of the resume format or listed separately.

    Skills and Training

    Under this section of your resume, include:

    • Any relevant skills not listed under professional experience (above)

    • All relevant courses/workshops/ seminars All relevant computer skills (eg, Microsoft office…)

    • Foreign Languages (Only list if you are applying for positions where your foreign language would be required or would be an asset, for example if you are applying to a company with a branch where the foreign language is spoken.... etc.)

     

    Personal Details

    Very few sample resume formats include this section. We do not suggest listing your personal details on your resume, such as age, marital status or hobbies. As a rule there is no need to list on your resume anything that does not apply or relate directly to the job that you are applying for. For example listing on your resume that you are single may be helpful only for a job that requires traveling 90% of the time.... etc.

     

    Citizenship

    (This section of the resume is optional- depending on the requirements of the job that you are applying to)

     

    Memberships

    In this section of the resume, list Professional Licenses/ Memberships/ Associations

     

    References

    • We suggest you contact your referees and prepare a list to have ready to give to the employer as soon as they ask for them

    • On the resume include "References available upon request". Some resume formats list the references, but we don't recommend doing so, unless you are asked to do so.
