The chronological resume is often mistaken for the reverse chronological resume that lists job experience starting with your most recent position and ending with your first job. For this reason, most employers prefer the reverse chronological resume, which becomes the most popular resume format.
Regardless of the format you choose the focus of your chronological resume should be to persuade the employer to invite you for an interview. Choose the resume format/style that best highlights your strengths to employers. To make your resume preparation task easier you may take a look at the following resume samples:
|Accountant||Assistant Vice President||Credit Officer||Medical Assistant|
|Administrative Assistant||Construction Process Engineer||Librarian||Senior Writer|

If you do not have an account, create one and include your social media link(s) on your CV/resume.
However, you should manage your online presence. Eliminate any photos and statements that could reflect poorly on you. From an employer’s point of view, someone who emphasizes partying on a social networking site is not focused on jobs and those who post complaints about work or colleagues are less desirable candidates. Online CV/resume should not include sensitive information as they could show lack of respect for confidentiality and discretion.
