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 time line approach. Typically, the most recent work or educational experience is listed first, followed by the next most recent. It illustrates how you have made progress towards your career objective through your employment history.Functional resumes group work experience and skills by skill area or job function. Use functional resumes to point out your skills over your specific employment history. It highlights more relevant skills instead of position titles.Combination resumes merge the chronological and functional styles. They present the knowledge, skills and abilities gained from work in a reverse-chronological order.Curricula vitae (CVs) are very different from resumes and are only used in certain positions and industries. Curricula vitae provide a detailed statement of your qualifications. CV's are more biographical in nature and are often used in higher education, science, and medicine<br />
