Writing a professional resume is more than simply putting information regarding education and experiences down on paper and sending it out to prospective employers. Resumes written for specific position(s) and a specific employer will set your resume apart from the others and provide the perfect vehicle for translating past experiences into the language of the reader - the prospective employer!
There are three types of resumes including chronological, functional and a combination. When some past experiences are directly related to future goals and some are not, the combination resume is most effective. Its structure allows for experiences to be separated into different categories - related and unrelated - thereby making the strongest impact. The Combination Resume is the most common format for recent college graduates. Because of this fact, the tutorial will focus on teaching you how to put together a Combination Resume.
