Pilot Resume Sample

Updated on March 4, 2018


Simply dumping information in a resume doesn’t open interview windows.

It is imperative to know what type of information goes where on a resume.3

Before you build your resume, it is important to understand the “parts of your resume”. Also, deciding whether to use a resume objective or a summary is essential. Employers invest a lot of time and money on you as a new and untried employee, and they need to be at least given the benefit of a well-written resume.

Organize the facts into various categories in your resume:

• Contact information
• Objective or summary of qualifications
• Competencies and skills
• Accomplishments
• Experience
• Education

When you fill out information in this order, you will be presented with a carefully crafted resume that an employer cannot refuse. Here is a template for your reference:
