3 best examples of a functional resumes samples

In this post I'm going to tell you about writing a resume and there are several different formats to write a resume. In post I'm going to tell you about functional resume. there are some general tips when you're writing a resume. The 1st step is: use reverse chronological order. Make sure you keep all of your "tenses" consistent. you don't need to put "References on Request" on the bottom of your resume, if an employer wants to know they'll ask you for those. Don't include your high school information on it. Avoid using the word "I" on your resume. Make sure that you keep it easy to read and very organized. Use bullet points and point out the best examples about you that are related to the job position. So, within this format, you're going to be able to have the best things about you that are related to the position. Its really important to make sure that your skills, your abilities, your coursework, everything that you're doing, is related to the job position.  

Before explaining Functional resume let highlight few questions

  • Do you love your current job?
  • Are you currently working in the field you want to work in after college?
  • Have you been working full or part time without any gas in employment?
  • Do all (or at least most of) the jobs in your work history relate to the position you are applying to now?
  • Can you truthfully tell your next employer that you have been fired?
If you answer "no" to any to those questions, you may not be using the proper resume format.
A resume does not have to be a chronological list of the jobs you have done.

Functional resume
