I was going to send this just to you, but I thought that others out there
might be able to benefit, too. The best resource I found while looking
for a new job in tech writing myself was "Rebecca Smith's eResumes and
Resources" at This site has wonderful tutorials

Web Résumés
Keyword Résumés
Scannable Résumés

One evening I just went ahead and downloaded all the tutorials and
printed them out and then went through them. It was a most valuable
exercise. You can check out my finished on-line product at It's simple, but I tend toward the
minimal and subtle (at least most of the time).

There are also some good tips at,,
and You'll probably find some of the
specific advise contradictory between some of the sites, but they give
you a lot to work with (please excuse ending the sentence with a
preposition, just be comforted that I knew what I was doing ;-)).
Good Luck!

I'm new to this list, so, I apologize for bringing up a subject you have
probably covered in detail earlier. . . .

I am applying for a new job, and want to put together an on-line resume
as well as the paper version. Can anyone point me to some good examples
of on-line resumes?
