Format Sample / December 11, 2018 / Jan Levine
Take a look at a resume format sample. You can find hundreds of these samples on the web. These samples are available for a variety of professions. Executive resumes - those used for people looking for six-figure jobs in the management fields will convey more and different kinds of information than professional resumes - those resumes for people in the white and blue-collar fields who actually do the work! Professional resumes are for people like accountants construction consultants salespeople nurses and so on. Public sector resumes - those used by military people who have separated from the military and are now looking for jobs in government.
As may be expected a format that is meant to be read out loud will look very different from one that is meant to be read. Unfortunately it is not always easy to gain access to a sample press release format for these media outlets. That said one can always try calling the station and see if someone can help out. Regardless of where your press release is going to appear it needs to be formatted properly. If you look at a sample press release format you may be fooled into thinking that the structure is universal. Perhaps it can be said that the parts of a press release are a bit like car parts.
If you are trying to get published in a major syndicate they may feel that this information belongs in the last paragraph instead. The only way you will really find out where it belongs is to study the latest publications by the syndicate. Other than studying direct from the publication resources you can also purchase software that contains a sample press release format. Typically you may find a large number of formats available within these packages. This can be of immense help to you especially if you want to format your press release for a number of different publications.
