FUNCTIONAL RESUME (Page 16)

A functional resume is beneficial when:

• much of your work has been volunteer, free-lance, consulting, or temporary
• you have a variety of different, relatively disconnected work experiences
• career growth has been stagnant or there has been an extended absence
• making a career change and you want to emphasize skills not recently utilized
• you are a mature professional with extensive expertise and many work experiences

A functional resume is NOT beneficial when:

• a career growth pattern is able to be demonstrated
• listing specific employers is important, as in highly traditional fields

• a limited number of functions have been performed
• recent employers are highly prestigious
