Chronological resume - This resume is most appropriate for traditional college students who do not yet have professional experience. The chronological resume lists work history in reverse date order with the most recent position listed first.  Many employers prefer this type of resume because it's easy to see what jobs you have held and the dates worked. 

Functional resume - This resume is often most appropriate for non-traditional college students who have a lengthy work history prior to entering college. The functional resume focuses on skills and experience, rather than on chronological work history. It is used most often by people who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.

Important note: Your resume is never really completed. As you build skills and gain experience, keep your resume updated. In addition, each time you apply for a job, you should tweak your resume to fit that particular position and employer. Always save your original resume and submit your resume to employers as a PDF file with YOUR NAME_RESUME as the file name. This will make the employer's job easier, and possibly score a point for your application.
