Hybrid Resume

An example of a hybrid resume

There are different kinds of resumes from which you can choose, depending on your work experience and the kind of position you are seeking.

A chronological resume is the most common, and most job seekers or internship prospects use this format. A chronological resume will showcase your education and work experience in reverse chronological order, with the most recent appearing first and oldest appearing last.

A functional resume is one that is designed to emphasize your skill sets and areas of expertise more than your work timeline. Most often, people who are changing careers or who have had gaps in their employment would choose a functional resume so that they can showcase their relevant skills or abilities and not the chronology of their experience.

A hybrid resume combines the chronological and functional by highlighting skillsets that relate to the job for which you are applying and providing your employment history in a brief summary as well. This type of format can generally be used by most job seekers.
