Know the resume? Of course, but do you know an actual resume name off the top of your head?
Probably not. Because there is no standard for a resume.
Each situation, job or professional objective requires a different resume.
That’s why there are millions, nay, billions of “How to’s write a resume”
But we all want to cut through the beef and simply write a resume, right?
Of course, so let’s get simple and go with the no-fluff chronological resume.
This version is the easiest and most widely considered when resumes are discussed.
The chronological resume serves as the best type of résumé to explain your education, career history qualifications statement & contact info. The minimum requirements include:
1. Contact Information: Your Name, address, phone number(s), and e-mail address(es).
2. Qualifications statement: What skills and abilities do you have that make you the appropriate candidate for this job.
3. Career History Company name, city and state location, job titles and responsibilities, yearly dates you worked there in reverse chronological order. Go back 10 years or 4 jobs – whichever comes first.
4. Education: School name, city and state location & highest completed degree(s).
