Selecting the Best Resume Format

Selecting the best resume strategy and format is crucial to your resume success. Most recruiters, hiring managers and human resources professionals prefer the reverse-chronological resume format because it provides a complete picture of one’s career history, usually without any employment gaps. However, your job is to choose a format that best highlights your career aspirations and unique skills and experience to potential employers. The format you select should enable you to effectively build your resume around your targeted profession and/or job objective(s), and showcase your particular competencies and accomplishments relevant to the profession or job(s) you are targeting.

The Curriculum Vitae (CV) is the preferred format for academic positions. Click on the side navigation or on any link below to learn more about the benefits and disadvantage of each resume format, including the CV format.
