What Is Your Resume Style?
A big part of digital artists prefer to send a portfolio with some samples of their work, but people that hire you are not usualy artists so they may prefer to do it in the traditional way, such as seen your resume and a cover letter first.

Chronological resumes provide a listing of each job you've held starting with your most recent job and going backwards. Up until the last few years, the chronological resume has been the most popular resume style. Why choose a Chronological Resume format?

  1. You have a strong work history and have worked for each employer 2 years or more and you have gaps of only a few months between each job.
  2. Listing job titles or the companies you have worked for creates an image that presents you as qualified for your objective.
  3. You have several years of employment in the field or type of position you seek. The positions you have held show growth in your desired field.

Functional resumes highlights your skills and accomplishments rather than your work history. It lists things you’re good at and things you’ve accomplished near the top of the page, and then summarizes the jobs or volunteer position you’ve held near the end.
The functional format is effective when you do not have a lot of work experience or none at all, switching fields or industries, or if you have had an inconsistent work history.

Combination resume integrates the ideas of both a functional and chronological resume by listing specific jobs under broad skill headings. It highlights skills and is easy to follow. If you fall into any one of the following categories, you may want to consider using a combination resume:

  1. Students, new graduates and entry-level job seekers. Workers with a steady, consistent employment history.
  2. Applicants reentering the job market, this takes a little bit of emphasis off the fact that you have not been working for a while.
  3. Older workers: Workers with extensive employment history need to sell their strongest credentials.
