Choose two types of resume formats that would best fit you as you apply for jobs and provide a rationale for your choice.

There are four standard types of resume formats (i.e., chronological, functional, combination, and targeted). The type that an applicant uses depends on the type of job the person is seeking. Students must do the following:

  • Research the four standard types of resume formats, explain each type, and who should you it (i.e., the characteristics of the job seeker; e.g., someone with little work history)
  • Choose two types of resume formats that would best fit you as you apply for jobs and provide a rationale for your choice.
  • Select one Saint Leo University Core Value to include in the paper stating why it is important to have this value as a job seeker.  

A two-page paper should be written on the four types of resume formats along with the rationale. The paper must be typed in New Times Roman, 12-point font using APA format. The paper will be graded on writing style, organization, grammar and spelling, and use of references with a reference page.
