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.

Keep up the good work, I'm sure I'll be a return customer. Put Marie in for a Bonus she bent over backwards to ensure I was satisfied. Thanks for everything!

After the initial shock of your wonderful work, I seriously looked at my cover letter. I believe it to be in great shape...I thank you for your assistance. I am quite impressed with what you have done. I honestly feel you have captured the essence of what I wanted to accomplish with a cover letter. Regardless of me getting this job, I want you to know, what may seem a small amount of work for you has left me proud of my own abilities. In addition, I would like to thank you for the suggestions you have made for my resume. I WILL put them to use.

I am very satisfied w/ the work Marie did; I think it was helpful the way you've designed the process -- setting expectations around deliverable dates, etc... This kept things realistic in my own mind. Resume looks great, happy with the structure and I think Marie emphasized all of the right areas as we had discussed. Just to say that in addition to Marie's frequent follow-up, I think the emails from Michelle -- even if some were system generated -- gave the process a very personal feeling. I've held off when approached by other individuals or companies when they've pitched a resume re-write, b/c the whole process felt like I was buying a used car -- your team obviously accentuates the finer points of the soft sell, which explains why Execunet works with you. Thanks for the great work.
