Functional Resume

A functional resume, also known as the skill-based resume, is a resume format that focuses on your professional skill test as opposed to work experience.

Would you rather emphasize your skills than your previous careers? The functional resume format is the ideal choice for you. And if you’re a career changer, job seeker with employment gaps, or someone with a highly developed skill set, the functional resume format gives you the best chance of impressing a hiring manager.

The biggest difference between a functional resume and the standard chronological resume is that a functional resume groups your experience under skill categories instead of job titles. Under each skill category, bullet points are used to highlight examples of your skills, and those examples can come from both work and life experiences.
