Have you taken time away from the workforce, but now it is time to go back to work? This professionally designed return-to-work resume template will help you create a standout resume that will get you hired fast.
Created for stay-at-home parents, family caregivers, and anyone who has taken a professional sabbatical for any reason, this return-to-work resume template has a layout that is different from most resumes.
The format and layout of most resumes are made for people who have a very linear work history without any breaks. A traditional chronological format resume puts too much emphasis on the chronology of your work history and makes gaps in your employment obvious. A functional format resume, on the other hand, will often be rejected by prospective employers and recruiters as they raise red flags that you are trying to “hide” something unflattering in your resume.
The best solution for a return-to-work resume is often a combination format resume, such as the resume template in our Assured Return Collection. This format allows you to call attention to your most impressive experience, credentials, and accomplishments regardless of where they fall in your work history. Yet, it still includes a chronological listing of your work experience to ensure it performs well in applicant tracking systems and is accepted by recruiters.
The Assured Return resume is also a good choice for experienced professionals seeking to make a mid-career career change.
The Assured Return Collection includes an optional bundle of matching documents, including a professional biography template, references sheet template, and even a cover letter template.
