Regardless of the type of resume you choose, aim to tailor your resume to the job you are applying to. While it’s perfectly acceptable to use a resume template, which you adapt to fit each job description, it’s a bad idea to send the same exact resume to multiple openings, even within the same field.
Once you’ve decided on a resume type, it’s time to start writing your resume. You don’t have to start from scratch. First, review examples of the resume type you’ve selected. Then, choose a template which you can copy and paste into a document, and then fill in with your own work history.
