XPastor has some samples of great resumes—either for you that need help in preparing your resume or for newcomers to the hiring process that need help knowing what a great resume looks like. David Fletcher put his stamp of approval on this resume and his comments are below, as well as picture links to the original resume and revised resume.
Here is a young guy who wants to serve Christ. Evan sent me his resume and asked for some advice. I told him, “Evan, give your resume a make-over. Dress it up so that people can easily see your experience and abilities.” He got back to me with a revised resume. Take a look and enjoy his fine work.
- Was hard to read, lots of detail, not well organized.
- Had a photo that needed improvement.
- He created a resume that looks creative, a quality I would want in a youth pastor.
- Organized the material so that it flows. I can follow his thinking better.
- Has his contact information on every page. This is great!
Evan shows what can be done on a resume with some hard work, creative thinking, and good graphics.
