THE RESUME SAMPLES PROVIDE STYLISTIC IDEAS THAT YOU MAY USE IN YOUR RESUME
There are various formats of resume:
- The chronological resume format lists job experience starting with your first job and ending with your most recent position, is applicable to most job-hunters but is not popular as recruiters prefer the reverse chronological resume format/style.
- The combined resume format combines the elements of the reverse chronological resume and functional resume types/styles. The format is the most flexible, allowing you to highlight those sections of your resume that are most relevant to your career objective. This is an increasingly popular resume format.
- The reverse chronological resume format lists job experience starting with your most recent position and ending with your first job. Is widely accepted and is applicable to most job seekers. This is the format preferred by most job recruiters and headhunters.
- The functional resume format (skill based resume), highlights the skills and accomplishments developed through work, academic and community experiences. Your skills and potential can be stressed and lack of experience or possible gaps in work history de-emphasized.
- The keyword resume format. The standard resume, no matter how effectively prepared, written or presented, is no longer adequate to meet the demands of electronic applicant scanning & tracking. A new resume style, utilizing key resume words and phrases, has developed. It must contain an adequate description of the job seeker's characteristics and industry specific experience presented in keyword terms in order to accommodate the electronic and/or computer process.
- The electronic resume format, often called a keyword resume, must contain an adequate description of the job seeker's characteristics and industry specific experience presented in keyword terms in order to accommodate the electronic and/or computer process.
Regardless of the format you choose the focus of your resume should be to persuade the employer to invite you for an interview. Choose the resume format/style that best highlights your strengths to employers. To make your resume preparation task easier you may take a look at the following resume samples by industry.
