THE RESUME SAMPLES PROVIDE STYLISTIC IDEAS THAT YOU MAY USE IN YOUR RESUME
There are various formats of the resume:
- The chronological resume format lists job experience starting with your first job and ending with your most recent position. It is not popular as most recruiters and employers prefer the reverse chronological resume starting with your current active position and typically have the start date listed to present or the current year. It is most often confused with the widely used reverse chronological resume format.

- The combined resume format combines the elements of the reverse chronological resume and functional resume types. This 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. Current active position on a resume typically has the start date listed to present or the current year. 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. Check the functional resume advantages & disadvantages.
- 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 keywords 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.
