A typical resume contains a “summary” of relevant job experience and education. The most commonly used formats for a resume are reverse chronological, functional and combined (hybrid).
A reverse chronological resume contains your job experiences in chronological order, usually for the previous 10 to 15 years. Positions should be listed with starting and ending dates. Current positions on a resume typically list the starting date to the present.
A functional resume contains work experience and skills sorted by skill areas and job functions. The functional resume directly emphasizes specific professional capabilities. This type resume works well for those making a career change, having a varied work history or with little work experience. A functional resume is also preferred for applications to jobs that require very specific skills or clearly defined personality traits.
In a hybrid resume typically leads a functional list of job skills, followed by a chronological list of employers. This type of resume is considered as safest for professionals who are changing their career without career break. Because they could list out their accomplishments under skill wise with respect to each employer they worked with.
