A sample chronological resume to learn from

This type of resume format is the traditional, and still most common, format. It's also the easiest to write. You organize it in reverse order by employer, with your most recent job listed first.

A chronological resume highlights your career progression and growth. Employers like it because it's usually easy to read and can be scanned quickly for your employment history.

If you've held many jobs within a short time period, a resume like the sample chronological resume below may not be your best choice, because it may look as though you've job hopped or that you didn't have much loyalty to your employers.

This is also true if you're new to the workforce, or someone coming back into the job market after a number of years, such as a mother who stopped working to raise children and is now returning to work.
