Functional Resume Writing

By | March 23, 2009

A functional resume is one that is tailored to suit a certain job. Many people are of the idea that a general resume that can be used to apply for multiple jobs is the best. Nothing could be more wrong.

It might save you a lot of work but it will not be functional. To apply for a job, read the job specifications and understand every detail and then tailor your resume to fit the job.

A functional type of resume is more focused on achievements and accomplishments made. This type of resume best fits individuals who have skills. They might not be highly educated or experienced but possess the required skills.

The best way to design a shining functional resume is by using a blue print or in other words a template. You can find the latest version of resume templates from any serious resume-oriented website.

The templates are free in some websites but in others you have to pay a certain fee before you download. Read carefully about the position you are applying for as well as the company you are sending your resume to.

If you are applying for an executive position in a conservative firm, read about their culture on their website and write a resume that is in line with the company’s culture.

A good functional resume is well formatted. To emphasize on critical points in your resume, use bold print, underlining, italics, bigger font size.

In fact, the font size you use on your name should be two or three times bigger than the rest of the text.  All the best in your hunt for that all important job!

    Awesome site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any discussion boards that
    cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of
    group where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable
    people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish
    more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do
    not discuss these topics. To the next! Cheers!!
