You have made the decision to take the next step in your career, and one daunting task looms ahead of you immediately: updating or rewriting your resume. Wherever you are in your career, writing a resume is a challenge. There are always questions such as: what to include? what format to use? how can I make my resume stand out from others?
And rightfully so - the way that a resume is structured and the way it presents your career information can make the difference between whether or not a hiring manager or recruiter will spend a few extra seconds on reading through your qualifications for open job vacancies.
If you're not sure where to start, consider using a template as a starting point. Here are three free resume templates you can use for any stage of your career, to take the next step for your job search in Singapore.
1. Chronological resume template
This traditional resume style works particularly well with those who have a shorter career history, or for those who have held multiple roles within one organisation. This resume style ensures that workers see your work experience in a quick, easy to follow way. It should include your education, work experience, and other information that can be digested easily and quickly.
