When writing a resume, most people forget to list events in their resume in chronological order, especially their education and their work history, this of course is a big thing to remember when writing a resume.
Of course the employer wants to read a little sample of your life, but they want to able to know what order it is in, instead of the reader thinking, "Ok she worked here, then here, what did she do after that?"
So remember to keep your sample chronological resume reader friendly like the sample below, as it is the piece of paper that secures you an interview.

Chronological format, what is that you say, basically that is just listing everything in order by the dates they happened as in the sample below.

Most people tend to write their Chronological resumes in the reverse format this is when you list the most recent item to the least recent note this is not the format below.

This is great for employers to read back through your history to see what you did, I believe it is much more easier to read reverse chronological format then to read chronological format.
But the sample chronological resume below is in true Chronological format for you to read and see how the layout is.
This is displayed by the work history and the education history being listed from the last completed to the most recently completed as you can see in the sample chronological resume below.

Of course the sample chronological resume is still in original and professional format, of the following headings, personal information, career objective, educational history, work experience, skills/competencies/ interests then referees.
Always remember to type out your chronological resume on a word processor.
And print your chronological resume out on white A4 paper with black ink for a professional look.
Do not write a resume out in hand, but if you have no access to a computer, try an internet café and email the chronological resume to the employer, or email it to a friend or family members computer, or just use their computer and printer to complete your chronological resume.

I hope the sample chronological resume below can help you in your completion of your resume, remember, a resume is the selling point of you and your career, what your resume says about you is what is going to sell you to a prospective employer.
