Confused about resume formats?

If you are thinking about creating a new resume or having a professional resume writer create one for you, one of the first questions you may be asking is what resume formats are used and why? In the resume writing business there are primarily two different resume formats used at all times, one is known as the chronological format and the other is recognized as a functional format.
While the two resume formats are vastly different, they nonetheless perform equally well in different situations.

The chronological format details work experience from the earliest work history to the present, listing in professional format the various tasks and responsibilities held by the candidate in each position. The functional format concentrates on the skills and competencies gained by the employee throughout their career and places emphasis on the qualities that make them a potential employee. Their work history is dealt with in a secondary position elsewhere on the resume. If you are still confused about the resume formats, we always recommend clients to review our resume samples on site and take note of the vast differences between them.

A professional resume writer will evaluate the candidates experience and level of knowledge and make a decision about which of the resume formats would prove most effective for securing their new position. There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to choosing formats and while many people are suspicious of the functional format it is used in a wide variety of circumstances for clients as diverse as graduates to CEO and CFO candidates.
Take a look at the various resume samples we have on our website and you will be able to examine the various resume formats in different situations and for different levels of candidate. From viewing the resume formats and the context in which they have been used you will quickly understand the benefits that are derived from each. Working with a professional resume writer significantly improves your chances of success as they determine your individual experience and expertise and evaluate the resume formats to provide you with the best possible chance of success.

At we have an expert staff who have extensive experience in creating both resume formats and who can work with you one on one to create an expert resume that can greatly improve your chances of success. Working closely with you they will identify your potential and choose one of the resume formats to best enhance your candidacy and present you as a serious candidate to a prospective employer/hiring manager.
