By On Nov 14, 2017 Resume Format
How long should your Resume be? The "acceptable" length of a resume often creates a fair amount of discussion. Must my resume be only one page? Are three or even four pages too much? Again, a common sense approach should prevail. In most cases, a one-page resume is preferred, unless your qualifications are extensive. The more focused your document is, the more likely it will be read. Strive to never exceed 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pages. Remember your resume should not read like a job description. You do not need to recreate your entire past history. A resume should stress your qualifications, skills, and achievements instead of your duties and responsibilities.
Don’t let the name fool you. This type of resume (as opposed to a chronological resume) isn’t merely “functional.” Written the right way, it could help land you exactly the kind of job you’re looking for—regardless of when or what your last job was.
Are you changing careers, have a gap in your work history or are you applying for a job that doesn’t match your most recent position? Then a functional resume might be one for you.
