A RESUME RIGHT FOR YOU
It may be that you've accomplished a lot and have an extensive work history. Or you may be just starting out, fresh out of school, or re-entering the job market. In either case, you must have the right resume - one that will accurately describe you and your skills and abilities.

STYLES AND TYPES OF RESUMES
By and large, resumes styles can be divided into three general types:

• Chronological
• Functional
• Combination


Most garden variety resumes fall under these three types.

WHICH ONE SHOULD YOU USE?
The trick is to find the right one for you, so that you can present yourself in the best possible way, because you know very well that a resume is not merely a inventory of your accomplishments and jobs. It is your marketing tool. It is said that an employer decides to hire an individual in the first few seconds of seeing that individual's resume. The interview that may follow is merely a confirmation and verification of that decision.

THE CHRONOLOGICAL RESUME
This style lists your job and education history in a reverse chronological order: You begin with the most recent and work backwards.

THE FUNCTIONAL RESUME
This style does not follow a chronological order, and leaves out the names of employers, educational history, and all dates. Instead, this resume concentrates on your skills and abilities and presents them in a clear, concise manner.

THE COMBINATION RESUME
This style combines the prime elements of both the Chronological and Functional Resumes, presenting your skills and abilities in an effective manner, while at the same time respecting the demands of employers to see some sort of job chronology.
