Resume Types

Chronological resumes list the candidates work experience starting from the most recent one based on the premise that it is also the most relevant to the job.

That is often true for career-oriented people looking for another job in the same field. A reverse chronological resume has the advantage of showing a natural progression.

Some employers like to see where you come from and how you evolved to become the person that you are. The reverse chronological resume is the most commonly used resume format.

Functional resumes list candidate￯﾿ᄁ￯ᄒタ￯ᄒルs experiences by skill areas.

This resume format is used most often when a person decides to switch career, when a person has held many different types of jobs during his career, or when there has been a extended period of absence from the workforce.

The focus is therefore no longer on career progression, but instead on transferable skills.

Video Resume

DO and Donts making a video resumes:

Do:

Write a script. If you can list what you want to say from memory, that is great, but it is not necessary.

Remember, you will be in front of a camera, SMILE!

We strongly suggest that you keep your video less than two minutes and preferably less than one minute.

Highlight one or two significant accomplishments from your education and/or work background, and why you are looking for a job. After you have opened your account.

Dress to impress. What would you wear if you had an in-person job interview? That’s what you should wear when shooting your video resume.

Think about what else is in the camera frame. Pick a quiet, simple place to shoot your video resume – in front of a simply painted wall or a curtain is best.

Don’t:

“Wing it.” If you think that you can just start the camera rolling without any preparation, you are either extraordinarily talented, or wrong.

Personal stories, jokes, or stray in any way from the purpose of the video resume – which is to explain why a prospective employer should give you a job.

Dress like you just got out of bed or are going to the beach. No t-shirts, sweatshirts, funky hats, sunglasses, swimsuits, or revealing clothing.
