A bank teller resume should always focus on a combination of experience and education, which the chronological resume format allows the job applicant to do.
Only under certain circumstances should the functional resume format be used:
- Career change
- Re-entering the workforce after a time gap
- When the applicant has been in the same or similar position for a long period of time
The following sample bank teller resume clearly demonstrates the advantages of a chronological resume.
The chronological resume format also includes important contact information and a clear objective.
The applicant may also include a summary of skills to draw attention to their best features.
The chronological bank teller resume also provides an opportunity to focus on Community Activities; which can be a strong selling point when applying for a bank teller position.
