The functional resume


coffee and laptopOpposite to the reverse chronological resume, a functional résumé lists a candidate's professional experience, skills and studies sorted by area or function.

It is used to make the recruiter focus on skills relevant to the job position the job seeker is applying for, so it emphasizes specific abilities and shows positions where the candidate has applied them, as well as important related achievements.

Since it doesn't follow a chronological order, the functional resume is ideal for those with career gaps or with little or no working experience, because they can still stand out thanks to their skills and capabilities.
