Lightbulb Collection of Sample Resumes with Advice

So I thought it might be valuable for those looking for their first actuarial job to be able to easily access some of the resumes that have come across the AO for critique in the past.

So here's a far from complete list of the ones I could find in 15 minutes of searching:

rjgutzeit, MichelleAnn, dukelampard, mollys, matt_madison, gdchan, primoh, MLD, uabutterfly, aospirit, Yaropolk87, JonD, joylife, hutch32, ckim

Feel free to post links to ones I missed, or other relevant resume advice links.

EDIT: Added more resumes:
Evah, TFizzle20, primoh, GooseyGoose, pma501, Robnorth, lewisje

More Resumes:
Fractolly, Elessar Dunedain, CedarTree, Applegreen, ryan122185, puntbamapunt, arsonxu
