Functional Resume Format

  • It showcases achievements and major skills from the top.
  • It clearly states your strong suits.
  • Employers do not need to read through boring job details.
  • States (through a summary) all you will bring to the table.
  • Only briefly mentions company names and positions held. 

This type of resume is ideal if:

  • You wish to change careers, or for those who job-jump, for homemakers returning to workplace, for students and the military.
  • You wish to make only a minor change in job direction.
  • Also highly recommended by resume writing professionals.
  • Used as an effective help in achieving a new direction or goal.

This type of resume is not ideal when:

  • Read by a more conservative employer looking for more information on each of your previous jobs.
