A standard combination CV combines all the strength of all the known types of CV.
I call it the hybrid CV and it involves listing your experiences chronologically and also classifying the experiences by set of skills.
Your skills may include: leadership skills, analytical skills and even one to three extensive experiences that used multiple skills.
It can successfully highlight the connection between experiences that do not appear relevant to the job.
It is favorable to every graduate students as it helps to underscore the relevance of teaching and research assistant and the transferable skills that they require.
This resume type is well recommended for recent graduates.
