Are you a man or a woman?




With that in mind, first things first. What exactly is a functional resume? Here's a definition you can count on.

A functional resume targets your skills and work experience, rather
than focusing on a list of employment history year by year. It is typically
used by job seekers who are changing careers or who have gaps in their
experience.

Instead of including a heading such as WORK HISTORY or WORK EXPERIENCE choose PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS. This provides a nice transition from your contact information to the 'meat' of your resume, which offers details about what you've done while in your various positions without having to refer to any gaps in that chronology. Simply focus on what you did and can do. Example:

Reduced income loss from employee turnover at ABC Sales by introducing new incentives such as bonuses for special projects and extended vacation with pay.

Reviewed government safety regulations and procedures to ensure compliance and dedication to requirements and standards for all laborers on construction projects and enforced them where necessary.

Revitalized training techniques by conducting seminars in the field rather than in the office, providing staff with an environment conducive to learning and communicating with one another.

Conclude the document with a list of your EDUCATION and TRAINING experience and the year of completion.

Finally, look over your resume and make any changes needed so the result will be a truly functional resume that will garner you a job interview.
