Resume

The resume is a promotional piece that accurately markets you to the employer. For that reason, it is important that the information be arranged so that it is easy to read and that what is included is important to the reader in determining their interest in your background for a position in their organization. The “functional” and the “chronological” resumes are most common. The functional resume lists skills that you have and experience that you have that demonstrates your abilities (i.e. customer service, accounting, clerical). This type of resume is most often used when a person is just entering the marketplace, is changing careers or believes it represents their background in the most compelling way. The chronological resume is usually used by a person who has had a lot of experience in one field, has had job that led to other jobs and wants to continue in their field.
