Chapter 14. Step 3: Select Your Format > The Combination Format

The Combination Format

The combination format recognizes the inherent drawbacks of both the chronological and functional formats used in their pure forms.

The pure chronological resume is too mundane, a bland work autobiography. It is descriptive, but tends not to be persuasive about personal qualifications.

The pure functional resume is too free-floating and reads like a set of assertions about abilities, unlinked to verifiable sources of confirmation.

Whether you prefer the chronological or functional format, the most effective resume blends the best elements of each.
