Chronological vs. Functional: Which Resume Format Is Best?

Crafting a resume entails more than just writing out the details of your skills, experiences, and accomplishments (although this is, of course, extremely important). Resumes should do more than convey your professional responsibilities and achievements—they should introduce who you are as a professional to potential employers. While there are many factors that can contribute to the personality of the document, including the style and the verbiage, the way in which your information is organized can make a tremendous difference in how you are perceived by hiring managers and recruiters. Ultimately, there are two major organizational approaches to choose from: chronological and functional.

Why a Resume Objective is Obsolete

In a competitive job market, you need to ensure that your resume stands out from beginning to end. If you include any filler in the document, understand that the hiring manager looking at your resume will probably not hesitate to discard your application in favor of a more eye-catching document. In order to be certain that your resume pops from start to finish, you’ll want to consider swapping out your “objective” section for a summary of qualifications and core competencies section.

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Failure

Failure is a tricky thing. It’s rarely acknowledged, and when it is, it’s quickly followed up by a, “But here’s how we’ll avoid it next time.” Particularly in business, failure is not typically something to be analyzed or studied; it is supposed to be brushed under the rug as quickly as possible. But while no one strives for failure, there is actually a lot to be learned from acknowledging what went wrong at work and why it happened. In fact, acknowledging mistakes whole-heartedly is often an effective way for a business professional to enhance their company’s brand in the long run. This kind of candor is unusual, and may lead to some insights that shape company policy and make the business more effective in the future.

Why Graduates Should Not Use College Career Services

Graduation is imminent. Soon your career dreams will become realities — that is if you can land an interview. Most soon-to-be-grads haven’t pulled out their high school, fast-food resumes for four years.

Want to Make an Impression on a Hiring Manager? Skip the Soft Skills On Your Resume

Do a little research on resume writing, and you’ll probably hear the idea of “soft skills” mentioned at least once or twice. But while you may be tempted to throw in a mention of “strong communication skills” in order to beef up your resume, don’t. This type of cliché addition is exactly the kind thing that will cause a recruiter to cringe. Truthfully, it is implied that you have clear communication skills. The ability to communicate is a trait that all professionals need to have. Furthermore, your hiring manager will find out whether you actually do possess these abilities as soon as they sit down to interview you. No need to take up precious space on your resume stating the obvious. Looking for some other items that you can delete off of your resume?
