4 Examples Of Resume Work Experience Section
The content and length of any work experience section is based on your level of experience. Whether you are just entering the workforce or have been a seasoned professional for decades, our resume builder will help you craft a narrative about your work experience that will show off your most relevant skills, training, and work experience.
Below, take a look at a selection of resume experience section examples that were created using our builder.
Entry-level Work History Section
How the Builder Helped Create the Daycare Worker Work Experience Section:
- Instead of opting for a shorter work history section, our resume builder allows users to include relevant internships and volunteer experience in their work history section for more impact.
- Since all text is customizable, users can quantify their accomplishments (i.e. contributed to a 20% increase in enrollment) to show the impact their work had on a past organization.
- Even for job seekers with limited work experience, our builder helps identify at least three bullet-pointed job duties per position. This helps applicants make the most of their modest experience while keeping their resumes appropriately brief.
Blue-collar Work History Section
How the Builder Helped Create a Bus Driver Work Experience Section:
- When describing job duties, the builder makes suggestions to help users identify the most sought-after hard skills for that job title. Here, the builder prompted this user to mention his GPS expertise and knowledge of local traffic regulations to his resume.
- The builder also reminds users to mention their level of experience. Here, Paul’s work history section outlines his years of employment, while also mentioning his 7+ years of driving in his professional summary. This drives home that he is an experienced candidate.
- The builder also helps users identify desirable soft skills, such as customer service, a perfect soft skill for a bus driver resume. If you have experience assisting riders with disabilities, for example, be sure to mention so in your work history.
Mid-career Work History Section
How the Builder Helped Create a Teacher Work Experience Section:
- If you have less than three previous positions to list on your resume, you can better fill out the page by listing extra job responsibilities if they’re relevant enough.
- If you have a multi-faceted educational background like multiple degrees or a double major, use your work history to reflect how these credentials have positively influenced your students.
- Action verbs like “planned” or “enforced” not only maximize your apparent effectiveness as a worker, but they’re a great example of how keywords borrowed from a job description should be used in a resume.
Executive-level work history section
How the Builder Helped Create a CEO Work Experience Section:
- Even though an executive might have pages worth of experience, there’s little need to list irrelevant roles. Using our resume builder and the right resume format helps users stick to their most relevant executive-level work to pack the most punch.
- Your skills change and evolve over the course of your career. When you reach the executive level, it might be difficult to identify which of your myriad skills are most important to include on a resume. Our resume builder’s pre-written bullet points select the most critical skills and achievements for your job title to help you choose what to emphasize as you write your resume experience section.
- Because every executive performs different functions, our pre-written text is highly customizable. Use our suggestions word-for-word, edit them, or add your own. You craft a work history that best describes you.
