Types of Resume

There are several basic types of resumes used to apply for job openings.
Depending on your personal circumstances, choose a targeted, chronological, a functional, or a combination resume.

Chronological Resume

A chronological resume starts by listing your work history, with the most recent position listed first. Your jobs are listed in reverse chronological order with your current or most recent job, first. Your education, skills, and other information are listed after your experience. Employers typically prefer this type of resume because it's easy to see what jobs you have held and when you have worked at them.

Functional Resume

A functional resume focuses on your skills and experience, rather than on your chronological work history. A functional resume is typically used by job seekers who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.

Comibination Resume

A combination resume lists your skills and experience first. Your employment history is listed next in chronological order.When you use a combination resume you can highlight the skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for, and also provide the chronlogical work history that employers prefer.

Curriculum Vitae

C.V is a Latin word meaning "course of life". Curriculum Vitae (C.V.) is therefore a regular or particular course of study pertaining to education and life. A CV is more detailed than a resume, usually 2 to 3 pages, but can run even longer as per the requirement. A CV generally lists out every skills, jobs, degrees, and professional affiliations the applicant has acquired, usually in chronological order. A CV displays general talent rather than specific skills for any specific positions.

Bio Data

Bio Data the short form for Biographical Data, is the old-fashioned terminology for Resume or C.V. The emphasis in a bio data is on personal particulars like date of birth, religion, sex, race, nationality, residence, martial status, and the like. Next comes a chronological listing of education and experience. The things normally found in a resume, that is specific skills for the job in question comes last, and are seldom included. Bio-data also includes applications made in specified formats as required by the company.
