There are numerous ways to build and format a resume. Though there is no right or wrong format, yet it is advisable to select a suitable format as per your career details.

It is advisable to begin the resume with a profile summary instead of career objective especially if you are having some experience in the field. Highlighting your job relevant skills in the very beginning creates a good impression and keeps the employer engaged. Following is one sample housekeeping resume for private homes.
