Best Functional Resumes For 2012

E-mail QUESTION from Amanda Holmes asking “What is a functional resume?” 

A functional resume focuses on your skills and experience, rather than on your chronological work history. It is used most often by people who are changing careers or who have gaps in their employment history.

A functional resume is arranged around skill sets — the functions of a job the candidate can perform. There are lots of options for categories. Sometimes you’ll use hard skill sets that show off technical prowess (like virtualization, desktop operating systems, or data protection) and sometimes soft skill traits, like project management or interpersonal skills. The actual companies worked for are then listed at the bottom of the resume, sometimes with dates and sometimes without.

So who might need a functional resume? Functional resumes work best for career changers, people re-entering the workforce and those leaving the military.

  • Career changers — This doesn’t refer to people switching jobs within an existing field — from an employee to a manager, for example — but instead to more radical career shifts, like from a career managing a restaurant for five years to one writing database code.
  • People Re-Entering the Workforce — Sometimes, if you haven’t worked in several years (say, because of raising children or going through medical issues) a functional resume can camouflage the gap. This strategy can be especially strong if you picked up skills during your time off that didn’t have a professional affiliation — like through volunteer work.
  • People Leaving the Military — Transitioning from military to civilian life can be challenging. On the professional front, it requires you to package skills learned in military service in a way that makes sense in the non-military world, while not violating (potentially) any disclosure agreements. A functional resume can help you organize military experience, and draw exact connections to your goals as a civilian professional.

Sample Email Cover Letter
From:     Katherine Knockwood []
Subject: Thanks from Katherine; I’ll be the next one

Mr. ________:

I wanted to thank you for the interview we had on March 13, 20–. The position that was being offered sounds like something I would be interested in. However, I do understand your reasons for not choosing me for the position, and I thank you very much for your honesty.

Perhaps when you are looking for an account executive with five years of experience instead of ten, you will bear me in mind. I am determined to be your choice. I hope the fact that I came in a close second to someone with twice my chronological experience will help you remember me.

I look forward to hearing from you, and thank you again for your time. With your permission I will stay in touch.

From:     Matthew Lorenzo []
Subject: Financial management / Sales orientation    

Dear Mr. _________:

Please include my name in your job search database. As requested, I have attached a copy of my current résumé.

Banking today is definitely a sales environment. While my marketing skills will always be useful, my interests lead me now to seek a more distinct financial management position such as Controller, Treasurer, or Vice President of Finance.

Since my CPA will be completed in January 20–, my search may be somewhat premature, but my transcript and results, combined with my practical experience, should offset my temporary lack of an accounting designation. I would therefore like you to begin considering me immediately. As an Account Manager, I saw many different industries, and so would not feel constrained to any one sector.

Including a mortgage loan benefit, I am currently earning $4,500 per month plus a car allowance. This should provide you with an indication of my present job level. Your suggestions or comments would be appreciated. I am available for interviews, and can be reached at (516) 555-1212. Thank you.

Yours truly,

Matthew Lorenzo

Dear Mr. Williams:

In response to your open position announcement in Newsday for a customer service representative, I am forwarding my résumé for your review and consideration.

In these positions, I have proved and continue to prove myself as a capable, take-charge team player with an ability to coordinate diversified departmental and customer support functions. Combined with my ability to proficiently manage and train others on the complexities of comprehensive databases and improve workflow efficiencies, I am confident that I would be an asset to your customer service organization.            

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you for an in-depth interview. Thank you for your review and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Ms. ___________:

I currently hold a sales management position for a very successful retail company. My talents to achieve high sales volume, work cooperatively with diverse personalities, and focus on providing exceptional customer service have allowed me to excel in customer relations and succeed in sales and marketing.

I have always enjoyed a challenge and have made the decision to extend my experience to the pharmaceutical sales field. Pharmaceutical sales has been an interest of mine for some time, and I am confident that my background and skills in customer service, human relations, and product distribution would transition well into pursuing this change. What I may lack in specific experience in your business, I more than make up for with my dedication, energy, and determination.

I thoroughly understand the importance of developing customer relations, generating revenue from sales potential within a designated territory, and maintaining accurate customer information. I have the aptitude and willingness to learn the necessary technical medical materials to promote your products. I am fully capable of projecting a positive and professional image of an organization and its products, and I strongly believe I possess the necessary skills and qualifications your organization seeks to be successful in this field of work.

Your time in reviewing my confidential résumé is greatly appreciated. I will follow up next week to answer any questions you may have regarding my qualifications. At that time, I would like to discuss the possibility of setting up a personal interview at your convenience. Please contact me if you would like to speak sooner.

Very truly yours,
