Sample Resumes

Following are a variety of resume samples to provide you with an idea of different styles/formats. Take a look at all of them and create your own draft; then have it critiqued by XPD staff.

*Please note: some organizations utilize Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to review and evaluate candidates' resumes. If the organization you are applying to utilizes an ATS to screen candidates, it is suggested you avoid the use of PDFs and text boxes on your resume.
