How do you decide whether to use a Chronological resume or a Functional one? 按时间顺序写简历好还是按技能或能力写简历?
The Chronological format is widely preferred by employers, and works well if you're staying in the same field (especially if you've been upwardly-mobile). Only use a Functional format if you're changing fields, and you're sure a skills-oriented format would show off your transferable skills to better advantage; and be sure to include a clear chronological work history!
What if you don't have any experience in the kind of work you want to do? 要是在你想要从事的领域没有任何经验怎么办?
Get some! Find a place that will let you do some volunteer work right away. You only need a brief, concentrated period of volunteer training (for example, 1 day a week for a month) to have at least SOME experience to put on your resume. Also, look at some of the volunteer work you've done in the past and see if any of THAT helps document some skills you'll need for your new job.
What if you have several different job objectives you‘re working on at the same time? Or you haven‘t narrowed it down yet to just one job target? 如果你同时有好几个职业目标怎么办?或者你一时之间无法做出选择怎么办?
Then write a different resume for each different job target. A targeted resume is MUCH, much stronger than a generic resume.
