Sample Resume for a Homemaker Re-entering the Job Market
Homemakers who are re-entering the job market aren't necessarily at a disadvantage. Your resume can still be riveting. The sample targeted resume, below, is for a homemaker who is returning to the job market and seeking a position as a registered nurse (R.N.).
By carefully targeting resumes for specific jobs and situations, you can greatly improve your chances of getting noticed in the job market.
This example uses the functional resume format, which focuses on portable skills and downplays chronological order by listing employment dates at the bottom of the resume.
A gray box atop the sample resume contains a mission statement that details what this job seeker aims to accomplish. The mission statement also includes the typical requirements for this type of occupation or career field. Notice that the numbers listed with the requirements shown in the gray box are cross-matched to qualifications shown in the resume.
The cross-matched numbers between the job’s requirements in the gray box and the candidate’s qualifications shown in the sample resume are just for illustration, not for your actual resume.
This resume sample is intended to focus your attention on requirement-and-qualification matching, the most important factor in causing your candidacy to get noticed during a job search.
