Résumé examples

Résumé formats vary widely. Some industries (such as theatre) have specific expectations for how résumés should be formatted, while other industries have few, if any format expectations. Following are examples of résumés organized by Missouri State University colleges. These examples are models only; you may choose to use some elements or take ideas from more than one résumé sample. The important thing to know is that your résumé should be customized to the specific position you’re applying for. It should be clear, concise, and easy to read.
