Yesterday, we talked about chronological resumes and how it would list your professional experience from most recent to oldest. BUT- If you have taken a sabbatical or have committed to raising your family or have been out of work for a substantial amount of time, then you could consider using a functional resume.

What is a functional resume? Unlike a chronological resume that lists your experience most recent to the oldest, a functional resume places more emphasis on what you know and your skills and value rather than timelines.

Is this the type of resume you should be using? Maybe but it’s not for everyone and either way, you want your value to weigh heavily in the decision-making process so contact Chapman Services Group for a consultation and we will be happy to help answer any questions you might have.
