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.

All of the folks I spoke to while trying to decide to use DCS and while preparing my resume and bio with DCS were just great. They are all very personable and professional and quite knowledgeable of the DCS products and services. I am happy with the resume prepared for me by Sharon Green. Her first draft only needed a few modifications to get to a completed draft. I appreciate her patient nudging to move me along in providing input to her. Also, it was so good of her to quietly listen to my description of my job duties and experience so that she could weave those tings into my resume and bio. Thank you Sharon!! I was at first very tentative about using a professional resume service. But DCS customer support personnel were very good in addressing my concerns and alleviating any anxiety I had about using DCS. In the end I feel that DCS has given me a much better resume and bio then I would have drafted myself. I am confident that the DCS product will help me greatly in obtaining another position. Friendly, professional, helpful and empathetic personnel at DCS.
