Quick Resume Writing Tip: This esthetician and makeup artist was skilled at her craft and had a very clear target for her job search. Unfortunately, some of her experience was decades old and her work history had lengthy gaps in it. However, she had completed some recent, relevant training. This functional resume example shows how the functional format can be the best choice in some cases. This job seeker’s background simply didn’t lend itself to the traditional chronological style resume. Instead, we opted to focus on her relevant qualifications and capabilities in summary sections followed by a listing of past, relevant work history. True to the pure functional format, dates of employment were left out. This strategy doesn’t work in every situation, but in some very rare cases a functional format can be the best choice.
