A little informal poll for those of you who actually seek jobs and internships: Resumes are those short pages that summarize your existence for prospective employers, listing your education, work history, and supposedly making you look competitive/non-competitive in the job market. There are three main formats for resume writing: chronological, functional, and "hybrid" which blends the chronological and functional format into one. Chronological resume format highlights your work history, and ideally shows continuity (no large unexplained gaps in employment) and career progression (you got regular promotions). Functional resume format highlights that you got skills, earned at a particular time and place, and would be good for the job or at least a taking "stretch" job that is a little outside your prior experience. Hybrid format just blends the two like half-and-half, usually emphasizing the functional background first, and listing chronology as an afterthought. My question to the forum: What resume format do you use, and why?
