Our editors offer a combination resume example as a guideline

Two hands and several red balls being juggled.
Does your combination resume feel like a
juggling act of all of your relevant skills,
experience, and education? Follow our helpful
combination resume example to see how you
can best format your resume.

The combination resume is a blend of the chronological resume and functional resume formats. The format is flexible, which allows you to emphasize the sections you think are the strongest. This means that when you're  writing a combination resume, it may look quite different  from another resume of the same style, depending on the section emphasized. Use this combination resume example only as a guideline, not as a rule. And remember, it is important that your resume be free from grammatical and spelling errors. Let our resume editors help your resume land you that dream job.
