The most common types of resume formats are:
The chronological resume which lists your work experience in reverse-chronological order starting with your most recent position at the top. This is the most traditional resume format and, for many years, remained the most common.
The functional resume (also called a skills resume) is best if you have multiple employment gaps, shifting careers with little to no experience in the industry you're applying, or re-entering the workforce after a lengthy break. This resume focuses on the skills that make you a strong candidate for the position.
The combination resume is a blend of the chronological and functional resume types. This resume format allows you to emphasize both your work experiences and relevant skills.
