    As you may know, many article writing companies require a resume, but i have no idea what to put in one??

    A article writing company must require resume, because without knowing yourself they can't give you any good job. So might send a resume if you want to get a job as article writer. A resume usually require short description of your academic background and experience on that field. For details you can search Google, wikipedia.

    It depends which company you are trying out for. Some are more easier than others but at the end a resume is just that. What really counts more is the writing sample. SO let me know which company you are trying for.

    I am in both so I wil tell you that Break is a bit more easier compared demand but both is very well still hiring writers. If you have written for Associated Content, Squidoo, or ghostwritten (textbroker/ and etc than put it. I would focus more the sample writing especially for demand. If you want you should place an application with break studios..get hired so you can used them on your resume as well. Start writing on other sites such as suite101 and such so you can have it on your resume.

    Once you are done than you sould apply for demand since your resume will look more full and "take your time" on the writing sample, it is important.

    I would think that actual writing samples are the most important aspect of this type of resume. I haven't applied for any content companies, but I would wager that somewhere along the way in the application process there's an option to include samples via attachment. Obviously, these samples should be unique.

    You might want to include writing examples, links to any published work, and previous employers. Most of the time they are just checking to see you are a not a complete noob, and you have some writing skills.
