Types of Resumes

Your resume can be presented in 1 of 3 main arrangements--chronological, functional, or a combination of the two.

  • Chronological: Education and experience are listed in chronological order, usually from the most recent to the earliest. This format is excellent for those with a solid work history or who want to highlight their current position. View sample.

  • Functional: Great for highlighting transferable skills rather than work history, and particularly appropriate when you have gaps in your work history. View sample.

  • Combination: Combining the best elements of both the chronological and functional resume, this approach groups qualifications in patterns of accomplishments or skills. It's especially effective for career-changers. View sample.

If writing a resume still seems impossible, consider hiring a professional to write it for you. The fee varies widely depending on your location and the complexity of the resume; expect to pay between $175 and $1000.
