Resume Template 5

Resume Template 5 is in a chronological format and scannable. A chronological resume format lists work history in reverse chronological order.

That's why it's also called a reverse chronological resume format. See Resume Formats for more information.

You may download this chronological resume template for free and modify it for personal use. It's an RTF file, which is compatible with most word processors (such as Microsoft® Word) and safe to download.

But first, please read the Important notice below. It includes the download link.

This chronological resume template has the headings listed above the sections. If you'd prefer one that has the headings listed to the left of the sections, see Resume Template 1. Refer to Resume Templates for more formats and styles you may download.

The resume template format (line spacing, margins, fonts, etc.) displayed below is a little different from the download version. That's because Web browsers and word processors display pages in different ways. The download version is better formatted.

If you copy and paste this resume template from your screen instead of downloading it, the format might not stay intact. That's because copying picks up background Web-page formatting that might not be understood by the software application into which you paste it.

Chronological Resume Template

[Full Name]
[Mail Address, City, State, Zip Code] • [Phone #] • [Email Address]

OBJECTIVE

[Professional resume writers often omit this resume template section in modern resumes, even though it's tradition to include it. Whether or not to include it is up to you, but first read the Profile section below. For general resume submissions (e.g., via job banks or recruiters), describe your career goal in one to three brief sentences. When submitting your chronological resume to apply for specific job openings, tailor your objective (and your entire chronological resume) to closely match each job description without embellishing. Delete this section from the resume template if you don't use it.]

PROFILE

[Although this section makes this resume template more like a combination resume format than a traditional chronological version, professional resume writers often include it in modern chronological resumes in place of an Objective section. That's because it generally lets employers know what you can do for them, which is better than implying right up front what they can do for you. (Interviewers will likely ask about your career goal, whether or not it's in your resume.) To use this section, summarize your background in a few sentences, and then list specifics under each job in your Experience section. Use action words and industry-standard keywords. Rename this section as appropriate; for example, Summary, Background or Qualifications. Delete it if you don't use it.]

EXPERIENCE

[Job Title or Company Name]
[Company Name, City, State or Job Title]
[Optional brief description]
[Year] - [Present]
  • [List main job responsibilities or major achievements]
  • [If applying for a specific job, match the job description requirements as closely as possible without embellishing.]
  • [Use action words and industry-standard keywords.]
[Job Title or Company Name]
[Company Name, City, State or Job Title]
[Optional brief description]

  •  
  •  
[Job Title or Company Name]

[Optional brief description]
[Year] - [Year]

EDUCATION

[Degree, Credit Hours, Diploma or School Name]
[School Name, City, State or Degree, Credit Hours, Diploma]
[Optional brief description]

  • [List significant awards, accomplishments or curricular activities, or your minor, work completed toward advanced degree, etc.]
  • [If education is your most important career asset, move it above Experience; for example, if you're fresh out of school with little career work experience.]
  •  
[EXTRA]

[Optional extra section for what you think is important to emphasize; for example, special skills, relevant military duty, awards or membership in career-related professional organizations. (Personal hobbies and interests are no longer included in U.S. resumes, because they have too-often given the wrong impression.) If this section is more important than another, move it up in your resume. Delete this section from the resume template if you don't use it.]

REFERENCES

References available on request. [This resume template section is often omitted in modern resumes, because employers now assume that applicants will provide references if asked. If you want to keep it anyway, simply delete this bracketed text. If you need the space, delete this section.]
