Functional Resume sample

This Functional resume sample is a simplified version, giving you a basic outline to kick start ideas for your own resume. 

Are there aspects of your career history you'd rather not highlight? Planning to start in a new direction altogether? Have you job-hopped or had lengthy periods of unemployment between jobs? Then this is the format for you.

You will notice it lists the actual roles, employers and dates down the bottom of the page. This is an attempt to hide the fact that there are missing years of employment and instead shift the focus to your strengths, skill set and qualifications in the first half of the page.

This format is often viewed with suspicion by an employer so please use with caution.
