The job resume format is the ground floor of our job resume creation. Too often, we become too caught up in the 'what format do I use?'
I'm asking that you get away from this small yet worrisome concern. Get out of the weeds; just slap the resume together. After creating a good resume 1st draft, then you can craft the draft into a suitable job-resume-format as applicable.
Ok, before we dive deep into the job-resume-format weeded jungle, let's all take a deep breath. As you may have already researched, there are 3 types of job-resume formats.
All of these job-resume-format styles can be customized (by you of course) to suit your specific job search needs.
Personally, I'm not married to one particular job-resume format because all of my resumes are individually tailored to the job application specifics of posting.
What are some of the advantages of the chronological resume format? Well for one, it maps out a blueprint of your entire work history over your lifetime. This is Huge for traditional employers, yet not so much for innovative 21st Century digital age employers.
I tend to shy away from chronological resume formats because it lends itself to age discrimination. [which is illegal and protected under USA Federal Law]
Nevertheless, within my personal laptop computer database, I maintain a chronological resume example tucked aw and up-to-date.
Yet unless I'm applying for a government job and/or the employer is requesting a specific job resume format style, then I am a Big Fan! of the functional job resume-format style.
Mainly, the functional job resume-format style allows me to move the most important detail of my experience and/or education to the top of the resume page. Have you ever heard the slogan, "Where's the Beef?"
There you have it...this job resume-format style gives you the freedom to remove your accomplishments out of time order. So what if your management skills dates back to 20 years ago. If its a management job that you're going for, then move that experience to the top of page.
