11. Do you offer different types of resumes?

Yes! There are 3 standard types of resumes and we write them all.  The Functional Resume, the Reverse Chronological Resume and the Combination Resume. 

The Functional Resume highlights your primary skills and accomplishments at the beginning, rather than your chronological work history.

The Reverse Chronological Resume lists your pertinent professional roles, starting with your most recent position and working backward from there.

The Combination Resume includes elements of both the chronological and functional formats with either a shorter chronology of job descriptions preceded by a short “Skills and Accomplishments” section, and an extended summary section including a skills or qualifications list, or with accomplishments under headings of different jobs held. Skills and experience are always listed first, followed by employment history.

Regardless of the type of resume you choose we will put together a package that suits your needs exactly.
