There are several kinds of resumes that you choose from and which one is best... well like most things... it depends.
The 2 most common types of resumes are Traditional (or Reverse Chronological) or Functional
In the traditional resume, you would include your job history, starting with your most current experience first. This type of resume is most effective when your career path is generally along the same job types, skill sets and/or industries. In other words, say you started in retail as a cashier, then your next job was as a inventory clerk, then an inventory supervisor, and now as a retail store manager. This showcases your career progression.
A functional resume is better suited for career changers. This type of resume focuses on skills and experience rather than your chronological work history. My personal preference here is that you should nearly never use the fully functional only resume. You do need to call out how you've gained those skills, even if you are a career changer. If not on the resume, you'll be asked to provide this information somewhere, somehow, so why not be transparent? Yes, career changing is tough. Breaking into a new field often means taking a step backwards, but if you find that's your passion... then go for it.
