Music Teacher Sample Resume

This music teacher sample resume shows how to avoid repetition if you've held the same job at more than one company.

When you've done basically the same job for two or more employers, it can become difficult to describe your work experience without repeating yourself. A combination resume structured, like the one shown below, with your work experience described in the summary of skills section, followed by a section with your job title, company, and employment dates, can help you avoid that repetition.

One thing to be aware of if you describe your work experience in the skills summary section instead of the work experience section:

Occasionally employers may wonder about when you achieved the accomplishments you list on the resume (was it during the most recent job, or was it further in the past?). If you are concerned about ensuring the employer knows an accomplishment was recent, you may add the date to the point.


Instead of writing:

Developed and implemented successful marketing strategies which increased student registration by 15%

You could write:

In 2013, developed and implemented successful marketing strategies which increased student registration by 15%

Of course, you can't include the date on every point. It wouldn't read well. But you can include it on two or three of the most crucial, impressive and recent accomplishments you include on your resume.
