I do not use a resume but a CV. Some difference, not so much, but some. Major advantage is that I can be freer with how I organize the info. I sort by activities (not skills). I have a list of past clients upon request. I have worked completely by contract for the past 10 years fulfilling a variety of activities. Writing, funding, assessment, teaching, etc. These are related and interconnected activities that give a better overview of my abilities than a long list of clients under which is repeated over and over the same info.

Its a judgement call.
