RIGHT FOR YOU
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
and large, resumes styles can be divided into three general
Most garden variety resumes fall under these three types.
ONE SHOULD YOU USE?
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.
style lists your job and education history in a reverse chronological
order: You begin with the most recent and work backwards.
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.
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.
