    The chronological resume (also referred to as reverse-chronological)
    format is by far, the most common resume layout in use. In using this
    format, the main body of the document becomes the Professional
    Experience section, starting from the most recent experience going
    chronologically backwards through a succession of previous experience.
    This resume works to build credibility through experience gained,
    while illustrating career growth over time.
    Individuals with any of these conditions may effectively consider a
    chronological resume.:
    * A successive career background in the field or of similar
    distinction to the next job being sought after.
    * Someone with limited work history, however, gaining experience in
    areas of competency applicable to the sought position through some
    previous work.
    * Job seekers with a steady track record, without significant lapses
    in employment.
    The outline for a chronological or reverse-chronological resume will
    generally follow this type of pattern:
    Name and Address Header
    Opening Headline, Objective or Occupational Title
    A brief Summary of Qualifications
    Professional Experience as main body of the document
    Education and specific Computer, Software or Equipment Skills or
    Training
    Breakdown: This resume format starts with a brief summary or objective
    section. Qualification Highlights sections are optional and are
    considered to be part of the summary section. Experience is then
    listed to follow the summary. Job descriptions are listed in reverse
    chronological order starting from most recent experience to least
    recent experience. The education section is next and then can be
    followed with additional sections such as: Publications, Professional
    Affiliations, Awards, Honors, Volunteer Work, etc.
