The three basic formats of resumes are: Chronological, Functional, and Chronological/Functional combined.

The Chronological resume is the more structurally formatted of the three.

  • Used generally when remaining in same job or career – a lateral move.

  • Caters to conservative type positions.

  • Always has an Objective section and Summary section.

  • Used especially with legal and academic professions.

This resume type best used when:

  • Applying for positions within a more conservative profession.

  • Of particular interest to older, more traditional types.

  • Wanting to show good job detail and highlight employer names.

This resume type is not recommended for when:

The Next Basic Resume Format is the Functional Resume

  • Highly recommended by resume writing professionals.
