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, Just wanted to update you that I have accepted a position with a consulting company that focuses on sales force effectiveness. The resume and cover letter clearly caught attention with the managing partners. I called them and the one I talked to had a call to me on his 'to do' list...Thank you for the discussions and for the work you did on preparing me for the employment market. I really needed the expert advice and work on my resume since it had been so long since I even tried looking. Best of luck to you for a successful 2012.

Outstanding quality and professionalism. The writer was excellent (hope to again work with her on future updates, focus resumes, thank you letters, etc.) She was creative, thought provoking and openly shared her knowledge and experience. I could not be more satisfied with the end result. Great investment and will certainly recommend your services to others.

T.K., Rochester, NY

Thank you so much for sending me the email with all finalized project files. I have opened them and saved them on my laptop. I will also save a backup copy. Michelle S. did a great job with my resume and cover letter and I am very happy... I will be sure to refer any friends and thanks.
