How To Write Killer Resumes & Get The Job You Want!
( 25 pages )


Writing A Chronological / Functional Combined Resume

The third basic resume format is the Chronological/Functional Combined:

  • Can include headings of various jobs held with description of accomplishments.
  • Only a brief job description chronology.
  • Only a brief Achievements and Skills section.
  • More detailed Summary that includes skills and qualifications.

This resume type is ideal when:

  • Wishing to take advantage of both resume types.
  • Highlights positives and down plays any possible negatives of
    either type of resume.

This resume type is not ideal when:

  • Wishing to present a shorter resume.

FOCUS ON SPECIFIC, QUANTIFIABLE RESULTS when detailing your experience. Generalizations get you nowhere. If you aren't specific and don't detail your expertise and highlights, someone else will. And, they will get the job - not you.
