You're Ready For A Career Change? Is Your Resume?
A functional resume is one that you don't see nearly as often as the tradition chronological and combination ones. That's because they are used when the situation for the job seeker is not ideal. Other instances may be returning to the workforce after a long period of time or job hopping. A functional resume is used when it wouldn't be as effective as if you had a solid work history, no gaps in employment and are looking for a job similar to the one you are currently in, if not a step-up.
