Resume Type: Chronological
This format is also referred to as a reverse chronological resume, because your most recent experience is listed first. It begins with an objective statement, then lists your work experience from your current position, back to earlier positions - including details of each position (bullets are popular to explain the duties and accomplishments). Finally this resume is finished with any combination of education, awards, special training, affiliations, etc. - basically whatever else is relevant in your background to the position you are applying to. If you have no "gaps" between jobs and your jobs are all related to one field or career path, this resume should work well for you.
