The Chrono-Functional Combination Resume

This is almost like traditional chronological format of a resume. Like the chronological resume it provides clear and unambiguous information about the job titles, as well as the dates (beginning and end) and places of employment. Under each of the major job headings you can expand your skills and your accomplishments. This way the reader can clearly associate your skill and application to the job with the particular job position in your work history. When you write this type of resume, again, you have to be careful that you maintaining the relevance of skill description to the job you apply for.

Submitting a resume in chrono-functional format is appropriate and probably most effective when some of the following is the case:

You are looking for career jump and want to advance in the same or a related industry, sector or field, in which you are presently working
You have a coherent and continuos work history without any unexplainable gaps and acquired skills in a logical and explainable fashion.
Your current position or the recent work history is, where you achieved something and where you see your future career.

The Chrono-Functional Resume: An Example

The chrono-functional resume is well liked by recruiters and employers because it relates Work History clearly to the acquisition of skills and the achievement of identifiable tasks. It is most useful for job seekers who

  • have a coherent (without "unexplainable gaps") job history and
  • who wish to make a vertical career moves, or
  • who have marketable skills and a history of achievements that makes them an asset in a non related industry, or sector.

Major Skills: If you have spent a considerable amount of time with the same company (say 3+ years), your skills should generally only be mentioned for the first job. Naturally, what you mention depends on the type of job you are doing. But when refer to skills, keep in mind that in today's fast moving environment, they might no longer be asked for or have been overtaken by events. Thus, make a proper assessment of what is appropriate in this area.

Reporting to: and Responsibilities: In this type of resume, it is important and not an option, to spell out to whom you reported to (job title) and what your responsibilities were. That further strengthens credibility, when you claim how your skills visibly influenced a company or department within a company

About Achievement

Mentioning achievements in a resume is important, because it gives the recruiter the feeling that he is not just adding a "head" to his manpower but, instead, someone who cares and adds genuine value to the team. And, in today's job market, that is a definite plus for the job seeker. But, keep a perspective about what and how you mention these things and how you present your achievements. While recruiters and managers like "new blood and new ideas", there is, at the same time, often an underlying fear that hiring a "tornado" or an "organizational cowboy" into a company causes more upheaval, than it is worth. Remember, when jobs are scarce, people fear about losing their job. That applies to recruiters and human resources managers as much as to people on the shop floor. They will, therefore, not expose themselves to an inordinate amount of uncontrollable risk, when they hire staff!
