The functional resume highlights skills and achievements from the experience section. It’s used to attract what a person can do and has done before, instead of when and where they worked.

The format of a functional resume

· Objective (Job Target)

· Accomplishments/Achievements

· Qualifications

· Employment History

· Education

· References

This format benefits someone who hasn’t had a progressive career or been in the same field.
