Chronological Resume


Definition: A chronological resume starts by listing your work history, with the most recent position listed first.

Your jobs are listed in reverse chronological order with your current, or most recent job, first. Your education, skills, and other information are listed after your experience.

Employers typically prefer this type of resume because it's easy to see what jobs you have held and when you have worked at them.
