  • Simple - easy to read with a simple layout and style
  • Structured - presented in a professional format
  • Significant - provide information that is relevant and valuable to the employer
  • Succinct – is concise and targets the role and the employer

There are many ways to write a resume. View the sample resumes below that show the 4S rule in use. Consider which style is suitable for your purposes, then utilise our resume resources to get your resume started.
