The purpose of a Resume is not to land a job directly but to entice the employer to invite you to an interview. Quality is what matters most when deciding the style of your Resume. You might choose Chronological, Functional or a combination of the two. Which reflects your style the most when it comes to Resume Writing?
The Chronological Resume is ideal when your previous work history corresponds to your current career interests. The experience you list, in detail, in your “Employment History” section will show the employer how qualified you are for a similar position he needs to fill.
The Functional Resume is perfect to highlight your transferable skills, especially if you are transitioning between career types. Here you can tailor your Resume to the job posting by using the key requirements as your skill headings.
