SkylineLoyal readers of may have noticed a sharp uptick in the amount of resume-related content in recent days.

There’s a good reason for this: Resumes are tricky! We know how frustrating it can be to write a perfect resume — and we know how infuriating it is to realize that there’s really no such thing as a “perfect” resume — just a resume that works best for you.

We hope the surge of resume-focused articles have helped people so far, but there’s a drawback to writing about resumes: You never get to really see what a resume is supposed to look like.

That’s why we want to share this infographic from Open Colleges, an online education provider from Australia. It offers a clear, beautifully designed picture of what a great resume might look like.

Keep in mind that you shouldn’t necessarily model your resume off of Open Colleges’ infographic. What your resume looks like will depend on your industry, the role you want, and even the country you live in. For example, Open Colleges’ sample resume includes a headshot of our hypothetical job seeker, which is usually frowned upon in the U.S.

That being said, you should definitely check out the infographic to get some inspiration for your own resume. Plus, if you visit the infographic on Open Colleges’ site, there are some interactive links that explore each section of the resume further. Neat stuff!
