Putting Together a Combination Resume
A combination resume brings together characteristics of a chronological resume and a functional resume. The finished product is a document that highlights an applicant's skills and accomplishments while at the same time takes into account her work history. The work history section of a combination resume backs up the skills and accomplishments section.
While this type of resume results from combining aspects of the functional resume and the chronological resume, it more closely resembles the former. It is actually almost identical to a functional resume. The sole difference is that the skills and accomplishment section is followed by a list of jobs listed in reverse chronological order.
As you would do in a functional resume, in a combination resume you would put your “Relevant Skills and Accomplishments” section right after your summary of qualifications. In the relevant skills and accomplishments section, list three to four major skills followed by a bulleted list of accomplishments, just as you would if writing a functional resume. A job history section will follow. Briefly list your current and past jobs from the most recent to the oldest. Do not include job descriptions.
