Résumé Formats: 3 Basic Flavors

You may have seen résumé books in the library or other résumé resources on the Web that show dozens of styles. For all practical purposes they can usually all be grouped into one of three main types: chronological, functional or combination. Each has its advantages and disadvantages and there's no real right or wrong kind. It's really a matter of what your experience is and how you can best show it off on paper.

If you would like to see additional résumé samples, check the resource library at your career center.
