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.

Do a little research on resume writing, and you’ll probably hear the idea of “soft skills” mentioned at least once or twice.
