It is used most often by people who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.Sample Functional Resume Combination Resume A combination resume lists your skills and experience first. Your employment history is listed next. With this type of resume you can highlight the skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for, and also provide the chronological work history that employers prefer. Sample Combination Resume Resume With profile A resume with a profile section includes a summary of an applicant’s skills, experiences and goals as they relate to a specific job. Sample Resume with Profile Targeted Resume A targeted resume is a resume that is customized so that it specifically highlights the experience and skills you have that are relevant to the job you are applying for. It definitely takes more work to write a targeted resume than to just click to apply with your existing résumé. However, it's well worth the effort, especially when applying for jobs that are a perfect match for your qualifications and experience.

Infographics can be shared with connections and prospective employers and pinned to Pinterest.They are like traditional resumes in that they convey similar information such as contact information, previous work experience, and related skills.However, infographic resumes convey this information in a highly visual format; for example, instead of listing previous work experience in chronological order, an infographic resume may display this information in an illustrated timeline. An infographic's unique blend of text and images can help job seekers stand out from other applicants. Linkedin Profile Using your LinkedIn profile as a resume is quick and easy, because LinkedIn does all the work for you. Fill in your LinkedIn profile as completely as possible and you'll have an online resume that you can download as a PDF, print and share via email.Another benefit of using your LinkedIn profile as a resume is that the more robust it is, the easier it will be for employers seeking candidates on LinkedIn to find you.

Video Resumes A video resume is a short video created by job applicants to highlight their skills and experience. Typically, the job candidate sits or stands in front of the camera and describes their qualifications.However, job seekers have been increasingly creative in their video resumes.

Because a video resume is usually quite brief (between one and five minutes), it is almost always supplemented by a traditional resume.
