Please respect the privacy of those people who were kind enough to allow me to post their Resumes and/or Curriculum Vitae (CVs). If you have any questions about writing a resume then e-mail me or check-out your Career Counseling Center. To capture the format and overall asthetics of these samples, they were scanned in as pictures. I have done as much as possible to decrease the size without compromising resolution.
I am often asked "what is the difference between a CV and a resume?" A quick,but accurate answer is that a resume describes your skills while a CV lists your accomplishments. Some other points to note are that your resume is never complete. It must be adapted for almost every job that you apply for. Avoid the mass mailing look that a very general objective and irrelevant content can give. For your first draft, you should write down all your skills and accomplishments. Make sure to catch all the details. Then start cutting and saving under different names such as Resume1, Resume2.... Same with cover letters and CVs. For the resumes examples which follow try to pick out those which are targeting a job and those that are general. Note that these people have a number of different resumes for different job descriptions.
