Are you one who has moved from job to job, never staying too long? Have you been out of work for a long period of time? If any of these situations apply to you, then the best resume to use is the functional resume. Functional resumes highlight your skills more than your education and work experience. Moving from job to job doesn’t look good to an employer. They want to know you’ll be in it for the long haul if hey hire you. So focusing on your skill set, which a functional resume does, will give you as good a shot as anyone for getting that gig. You can also be sure that an potential employers will inquire about any gaps in your employment, another reason why work experiece is downplayed on a functional resume.
