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.

Hi Michelle. Since our mailing,I have had six phone interviews with recruiters leading to being a candidate for Chairman of a {Name of State} based company, CEO for a {Name of State} Company and being introduced to two private equity firms by another recruiter for Board Directorships. Two others want to introduce me to private equity firms they partner with for proprietary deals. Finally, {Name of Recruiter} of {Name of Firm} out of Silicon Valley said the resume was among the best five he has ever seen from both a format and content standpoint (maybe all 5 are your clients !)...On the VC side, I received a couple Email responses. I thought you might want to know all of this. Thanks for the great work.

A truly top-notch organization! From start to finish, each phone contact, e-mail reminder, ease-of-use worksheets....a absolute pleasure to work with such professionals. It really puts your mind to ease as the customer. The job search and interview process is stressful enough....your team takes so much of that away knowing that I can present a resume represents me and my accomplishments. In this way, my first impression will shine!!

Nancy was a pleasure to work with. I was very impressed with the level of dedication that she had put into my project. She was very well versed on "my industry", and asked very specific questions toward our collaborative process. The end result....my resume will get the attention it deserves...the format and content are all first-class.

I will highly recommend your services to all that I know.
