Solved Example on Sample Resumes

Q: List out the differences between a combination, functional and chronological resume.


  • Chronological: The chronological resume focuses on the work history in reverse chronological order. Thus it is suitable for candidates with a rich history of relevant work.
  • Functional: A functional resume emphasizes the skills related to the job and not much on the work experience. Hence, a functional resume is a perfect fit for candidates with little or no relevant experience, people changing jobs or people looking out for their first professional exposure.
  • Combination or Hybrid: The combination resume, as the name suggests, is a mix of both the chronological and functional resumes.
