How to Format Resume

1. Chronological Resume Format 2. Functional Resume Format 3. Hybrid Resume Format

There are 3 types of resume

This type of resume lists your work experience in chronological order, starting with your most recent job and going back in time.  This is the most common type of resume format and is often preferred by employers.

1. Chronological Resume Format

This type of resume focuses on your skills and abilities, rather than on your work history.  This can be a good option for people who have gaps in their employment history or who are changing careers.

2. Functional Resume Format

This type of resume combines elements of both the chronological and functional resume formats.  This can be a good option for people who have a strong work history and want to highlight their skills and abilities.

3. Hybrid Resume Format

Once you have decided on a resume format, you can start to fill in your information.   Start by listing your contact information, including your name, address, phone number, and email address.

Then, list your work history, starting with your most recent job. Include the company name, your job title, the dates you worked, and a brief description of your duties and responsibilities.

Next, list your education and training. Include the name and location of the school, the type of degree or certification you received, and the dates you attended.

Finally, list any skills and abilities that you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for.  Once you have all of your information listed, you can start to format your resume.

– Use simple, easy to read fonts and font sizes.   – Use white space to break up sections of your resume and make it easier to read.   – Use bullet points to list information.   – Use action words to describe your duties and responsibilities.   – Proofread your resume for grammar and spelling errors.
