Functional Resumes

Functional resume is most appropriate for those looking for a change of profession, individuals resuming their professional life after a considerable gap or those who have academic qualifications as well as work experiences from varying fields and do not have a clear cut well defined career objective .

The function resume is drafted such that, the facts and figures do not appear in a sequential order but are rather clustered into groups of qualifications and experiences highlighted in such a way that they cover up any evidence that there is  any  gap(s) in the ones working career. The disadvantages to those that use the format is that the format is seldom accepted in traditional set ups or organizations such as Government offices, legal sectors or even in the financial organizations.
