A great deal of work experience? Not or enough or no work experience? Only participated in campus organizations and activities?

No problem! Regardless of your work experience or lack thereof you can create a resume to showcase your skills, experience, and highlight your strengths to prove you are the right candidate for the job!

Check out the resume examples below and determine which type of resume will help you land the job your desire!

No work history, involved mostly in campus organizations, or a gap in employment? A functional resume is most likely to highlight your strengths to potential employer as it focuses or your skills and experience rather than your work history.

See example of a functional resume: Functional Resume

Work experience? A chronological resume is most likely to showcase your related work experience and experience where you were able to gain certain skills that are needed and relatable to the job you are applying for. Chronological resumes list your work history in reverse chronological order (most recent to oldest). See example of a chronological order: Chronological Resume

Work experience? Campus involvement? A combination resume is most likely to showcase all of your experience and skills to potential employers!

Combination resumes, and chronological resumes are very similar in format. See example of a combination resume: Combination Resume

 Regardless of the type of resume you use to format your resume, be sure to follow the guidelines in the resume rubric to ensure you are meeting resume standards suggested by NSU Career Center!
