2. How to determine the type of resume?
A. Chronological Resume



Chronological resume presents your life experience in a
chronological format, focusing on what you have been doing

Many employers prefer chronological resume to skills resume as it
provides a clear picture of your employment history, focusing on career
advancement and increased responsibilities.
B. Skills Resume



If you are changing career and have little or no experience related to the
position you are applying for, you should use a skills resume…

Skills resume focuses on the skills you have rather than work
experience or education.
C. Functional Resume



We strongly advise you to use a functional resume, which includes the
best of the two generic resume types. How…
1. Outline the skills and knowledge relevant to the position you are
   applying for.




2. Continue with your experience and educational background
   supporting the skills you have with specific examples.
3. YOUR Titles at different phases




1.   PHD candidate,
2.   PHD degree holder
3.   ABD: all but dissertation (applied to a person who has completed
     all requirements for a doctoral degree except for the writing of a
     dissertation)
