A functional resume format is used to focus attention on an applicant’s skills and qualifications, and leaves out the standard chronological review of their last ten years of employment details. Most often, this type of resume is used to highlight skills when a career history is inconsistent-meaning the applicant has gaps in between employment positions and/or a change of career industry or position.
