Resume Tutorial  

Types of Resumes

There are four basic types of resumes: chronological, functional, combination, and curricula vitae (CVs). Choose a format that best fits your experiences and industry or one that you are comfortable with. Ultimately, the choice of resume format is up to you.
Chronological resumes present information in a timeline approach.

Functional resumes group work experience and skills by skill area or job function.

Combination resumes highlight your skills and experiences.

Curricula vitae (CVs) provide a detailed statement of your qualifications. They are only used in certain positions and industries.
