Sport’s Marketing as a Career
In order to apply for any job opening one needs to have a resume of its own which is a summary of the education, skills and experience of an individual.It is one of the ways of screening job applicants therefore it is very important for a person to have a resume that is presentable and up to the mark.There are mainly three different formats of writing a resume, However there is no fixed pattern and it depends on an individual that which one does he chooses depending on the industry and ones own comfort.
The different forms are as follows:
Chronological Resume: This is the one of the most commonly used style which outlines the work experience in a reverse order, starting off from the most recent job towards the first one.
This is best for those applicants who have a strong work history. Functional Resume: This type of resume focuses on individuals skills based on the job function. Combination Resume: This is somewhat a balance between the chronological and functional format resumes. It states the skills and the experience of an individual first and then the employment history.
This format is relatively used less than the other two. I have used the Chronological format in my resume. I chose this since I have been associated with reputable organizations and this would give a quick and easy overview to my employer of my career path and achievements in a chronological manner as it sorts out the experience by date and highlights my most recent developments.
