Truly functional resume samples are in fact nothing like 'functional' in the sense we think of. What we need to do is stand out from the crowd, and appeal on an emotional level to the person reading it. For example, a powerful resume will always begin with an objective, almost like a mission statement, because that really makes them take notice. You want to include reasons why you want the job and why you are ideally suited to it. Ninety five percent of the other guys won't even think of doing that.
Many people are accustomed to writing cover letters and resumes in a certain format. Functional resume samples will help people adjust their method of presenting themselves to an employer because the samples will show the applicant how to emphasize their professional skills, before they expose their short work history. People obtain proficiencies in certain specialties, that outshine the achievements that were earned in a job that is in no way related to the position that the person is applying for. Functional resume samples will show people the differences in resume formats.
Match & Map Your Skills To Their Needs, Always match your skills to the needs of the job you are applying for. If their job requires customer service skills, be sure you have that skill and list it on your resume. If you do not have a skill the employer is looking for then try to map the skills you do have to the one they desire. For example, if the employer wants someone experienced in Microsoft Word and you have not used Word then think about what you have used. Maybe you have used Word Perfect or Open Office Writer. If so, be sure to write this down! You can include it like this: Experienced in Open Office Writer (very similar to Microsoft Word). If you follow the good resume samples above, you will do a much better job of showing how qualified you are. Remember, this is the whole point of your resume: to get the employer's attention and show them you are a great fit for their needs. If you do this you should be granted an interview.
