About This Sample Combination Resume for a Senior Manager in Transportation Logistics

This two-page resume for Lillian (not her real name) is a good example of how to address a few points. Take a look.

  • Skill headings. A seasoned professional, Lillian has a long career history. Although the resume is lengthy, it's easy to read because she broke up her many bullet point statements with skill headings that support her job objective.
  • Dates and age. The Additional Professional Experience section allowed Lillian to include more relevant experience without listing early dates, which might have indicated her age.
  • No dates under Education. Another way Lillian avoided age discrimination was to omit dates in her Education & Professional Development section.
