Chronological, functional, or a combination? The right resume format presents your work history and skills in the best possible light.
A prospective employer does not need an exhaustive list of everything you have done in a previous job. When describing your duties at a previous job, highlight your accomplishments and, whenever you are able to, quantify them with hard numbers on your job resume. It is all good and well that you led a team of six salespeople, but it is a lot more powerful to say that sales for your team increased 50 percent under your leadership.
You do not need to start from scratch every time you send a resume. But it is worth the time to take a few minutes to align your resume with the job posting for your target job. This can include editing the professional summary section at the top of your resume to highlight your skills and experience that are most relevant to what the employer is looking for, or revising some of the wording you use in your resume to match with the language used in the job posting.
