The chronological resume is one of the most commonly used resume formats, which lists your work experience in chronological order from your most recent job to your earliest. Use this format if you have a solid work history and ideal experience for the job to which you are applying, and no major gaps between employment.  A chronological resume's simple and straight-forward approach divides your information into separate sections, which all should fit onto one page.
