Writing Your Best Resume - Choose an Approach

CHOOSE AN APPROACH

Deciding upon the best approach for your resume format is a major decision. Real and compelling differences characterize the two most common formats, which have impact on the receptivity employers have to your initiatives.

No universally "right" format is appropriate for all people. Your review of your own objective and background will be your most effective guide to selecting the best format for you.

Most resumes are served by two approaches: Chronological or Functional. The chronological approach states work experiences in the order they were incurred. The functional approach focuses on particular job functions the person has experience with. I will provide the pro's and con's of each in coming posts.
