Writing Resumes and Cover Letters

clipartResume Types:

  • CHRONOLOGICAL: This the most common resume, which highlights your work employment history. It lists your education and experience in reverse order, starting with your current or most recent job. 
  • FUNCTIONAL: This resume highlights your transferable skills and experience that are most relevant to an employer. Ideal for career changers or those with gaps in their employment history.
