Reverse chronological

This is the most traditional format and focuses on your career.

This is a good choice if:

  • You want the reader's attention to focus specifically on your last two jobs

  • You have had a gap in your career (eg for raising a family) but you are sure you can easily describe the skills and experience you have gained during this time

  • You are looking for a job in a specific field for which you have no recent experience

  • There are no changes in your career direction
