Blank spaces might be provided on functional format samples to give applicants room to organize their work histories. Since job skills are more important than work histories, many job seekers will use functional resume samples to learn how to put work histories in reverse order, so that unemployment periods are not so easily recognized. Job applicants will list their employment history and any education degrees that they have received, tailored to the potential job position, rather than just listing your work history chronologically.
You don't know if the sample you're tempted to copy was even effective. Here's a question: if you copy text straight from a lousy resume, what does that make your resume? There's a reason for the old axiom, garbage in, garbage out. Unless you have it on good authority that some particular resume sample is a real gem, it's just as likely a lump of coal. The trouble is, many folks who aren't trained in resume writing simply can't tell just by looking at a resume if it satisfies all the criteria that hiring officials are looking for. Is it formatted for maximum benefit of the candidate's qualifications? Is it keyword rich? Does it demonstrate subtle branding techniques that set the candidate apart from his/her competitors? Is it sufficiently promotional without seeming biased?
Remember, there are thousands of other people following the same sample resumes to create their own. So, it is advisable to use several sample resumes. Go through them. Compare among the best ones. Then use the best three or four sample resumes and create one that appears unique. Since you will be applying for a professional job, your resume must also look professional. This does not mean you cannot go out of the way to create something more unique than the ones available in the net. Your resume is your first impression to your potential employer and don't forget first impression counts. So, you better make it as impressive and attractive as possible.
