Targeted resumes aren't particularly liked by most recruiters and employers, as they make it difficult to work out what you have actually done in each role.

For current students or recent graduates, we recommend that you first try out our resume sample for students or our resume template for graduates. If you have worked for a number of years, please try out the example resume (performance), before you try out a targeted resume.

A targeted resume, is generally one page long and only contains a few sections. Your resume may require different section headings (to those listed), depending on what you need to list in your own resume.

Before deciding on a targeted resume, please look at our article on selecting your resume format. As well as checking out the targeted sample resume below, please also see:
