Why Do We Recommend Resume Examples?
There’s nothing worse than staring at a blank piece of paper with no idea where to go with it. Resume examples are great for showing you how someone has tackled this issue before and for giving you an idea of where you might take it to tell your story.
Winning resume examples give you the foundation you can build off of, not on top of. This allows you to craft a resume that shows who you are and what you have accomplished in a researched way that is true to you.
Generic resume templates you find on the web are akin to when your older sibling does your homework for you while resume examples are when your tutor shows you how to do it.
Building a resume with influence from successful resumes will bring better results than inputting your information into a resume template.
In reality, there are very few instances where a resume needs a specific section or format. On top of that, who says that a section has to have a certain title? You might not have technical skills, you might have industry expertise, and so on.
With resume templates, you can’t go outside of the box and they force you to paint-by-numbers in your resume building. Where recruiters favor creative thinking (practically everywhere), this is not the image you want to project.
