While there's no single right way to write your resume, and the content will differ based on many factors specific to your work experience, there are some essential sections that are common to any resume format.
If you have no employment gaps and are following a traditional career path, the chronological resume style will probably work well. It's also the most familiar to employers. In this approach, you'll detail each job, with the most recent first, and outline your work history. The recommended sections are:
- Contact info (name/phone/email)
- Resume summary
- Work experience
If, however, you have unexplained employment gaps, or you're considering a career change, the functional format may work best for you. In that case, you would add an "Accomplishments" section after your resume summary. This new section will hold all of your career achievements without relating them to a specific employer.
By reviewing the supervisor resume samples already identified, you'll be able to determine which format will represent your work history and your career goals most appropriately.
