People often wonder if they should use a topical rather than a chronological resume and ask if I can prepare a topical resume for them. Of course having written thousands of resumes, I can do so. But before I do I like to share a few insights with them.
Most people want to use a topical resume because they basically want to hide something. They may feel they changed jobs too often. They may feel they don’t have any experience in their area of new interest. They may be unsure of what they want and wish to cover all the bases.
