A guide for researching careers, jobs and sources and help with resumes, cover letters and interviewing.

Creating Your Resume

There are two main styles of resumes: chronological and functional

Chronological: this type of resume highlights your employment history. You should use this type of resume if you have a lot of career experience in one field and are planning to apply for a job in that field.

Functional: this type of resume highlights your skills. You should use this type of resume if you do not have a lot of work experience, or if your work experience is in a different field from the job to which you are applying. This type of resume is ideal for first-year students or people who want to switch career paths.
