Combination Resume


The combination resume format pulls together the chronological and functional formats into one. It lists experience like the functional format and accomplishments in sections with specific headings directly applicable to the targeted position. However, it lists employment information under a SEPARATE category (only title, company, location, and dates) which is similar to the chronological format. Since it easily tells the reader how a candidate is qualified for a position while also providing an employment history, it has fast become a favorite resume format amongst many employers and recruiters.

Combination Format Example:


Administration Management

  • Managed patient administration, payments and customer service for accounts.
  • Provides office support for a specific department of clinical practice.


Customer Service

  • Implemented more cost effective advantages in information technology, resulting in a 15% decrease in patient wait times and 25% increased patient satisfaction.
  • Prepare patient charts; maintains database of patient information, care requirements, and changes; reviews and maintains patient data.
