Resume 

Chronological - a reverse listing of your job and experience, highlighting the major contributions or milestones during each position. This is good for those with a solid work history because it shows a continual time frame of employment. 


Functional - if your work history is sporadic, or if you're targeting a specific job/employer, the functional resume focuses on your skills and experience rather than your work history. The functional resume is also good if you are changing careers.


Combination - The combo resume uses a listing of your skills and expertise followed by a listing of your employment history. If you're at a mid-point in your career this resume can highlight a stable history, or hide a sporadic work history.
