CV and Resume Styles
There are a wide variety of successful CV and resume styles you can employ. They vary depending on the circumstances of your desired position, industry and personal style. There are a few basic styles of CVs and resumes, each appropriate for different situations. A targeted resume, for example, is created when a job candidate is seeking a very specific position. A combination resume tends to stress background and experience in relation to a set career path. In most cases, styles for both resumes and CVs are fairly rigid in format to ensure the end document is clear, easy-to-read and to the point. A resume or CV is meant to give a potential employer a snapshot of a candidate’s background, job history and achievements. Brevity tends to be favored in most styles as a result.
