Best resume format

by Andre
(Sydney Australia)

I graduated 3 years ago and am thinking about a change. Am I right to say that the best style of resume for me would be the combined format?

I'm in the accounting field and am looking to diversify my experience as an accounting professional.

Thanks, Andre

Andre - many thanks for your question.

Without knowing the full particulars of your employment history it is hard to be specific. But, given that you've been professionally employed in your field for only 3 years I suspect the better style of resume would be to choose the reverse chronological style.

My reasons for this are - you seem to be continuing in your profession, so this resume style supports that career goal; also the combined format seems to work best for people with substantial experience - so maybe think about this style a little later in your career.

All the best.
