In part 3 of the series on resumes I mentioned that honesty is the best policy and it is the best way to start a relationship with a potential new employer. That brings me to the next resume topic -- the chronological versus topical resume. A recent study showed that most hiring managers prefer the chronological resume as it is easier to read than a topical resume. The chronological resume lends itself to showcase accomplishments with each position and ideally will show growth.
Two other points to remember is to put education at the bottom of the resume and it is not necessary to include references or even typing in "references available upon request" at the bottom of your resume as recommendations come much later in the application and interview process.
