All that person is thinking about is the risk attached to you: is it more of a risk to let you work for a competitor, or is it more of a risk to have you working for them? Your resume will lead them towards one of those conclusions. But when we talk about 'functional resume samples', many people make the mistake of thinking that their resume must be objective, direct, businesslike, and devoid of personality. Nothing could be further from the truth. We call it a 'functional resume' because it performs its function, ie it gets them ringing you and wanting you to come in for interview. In fact, the image we often have of the word 'functional', in other words objective, logical, 'left-brained' is precisely the sort of resume that usually gets a big yawn and then gets trashed.
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?
Many job seekers are searching for the best resume sample. It reminds me somewhat of the quest for the holy grail. People spend hours searching for that one resume sample that will finally unlock success in their quest for a great job. Generally, they end up frustrated and tired. Because once again, despite their best effort, they only managed to find bits and pieces of the key they so desperately seek.
