Sample Functional Resume Experience

It is in developing the Experience section of your functional resume that an understanding of the skills related to the position is essential. It will help you determine how experiences will be presented – which skill area will they be listed within; what order will experiences be presented; and which experiences will be omitted. The experiences may be paid or unpaid. The functional resume has a very different look and feel in the “Experience section” – which in its standard form does not exist. The functional resume lists accomplishments and qualifications within “Skill Headings” followed by a “Work History“section that simply lists positions held with only basic information for employment (work history includes only paid employment).Sample Functional Resume Experience

Functional Resume - Skills

  • Start by listing the top three or four skills required for the position you are pursuing: Skill #1
  • After researching the position and determining those skills that are related, it is important to provide evidence of that skill by listing related experiences within the appropriate skill section. This evidence will communicate more completely your accomplishments and qualifications for the position.
  • List information in order of importance to the position with most important first. Remember to group entries – you do not want a long list of skills or a long list of entries within each skill section. Try to keep each list of experiences for each skill area to no more than 6-7 entries – it will help to keep the reader focused.
  • Where and when you accomplished the skills/qualifications listed is not offered here. The assumption is that you accomplished it through work, education, or volunteer experiences which are listed in other sections of the resume. Remember that in the other sections of the resume only the basic information is provided for the experience, as the details that are related to the position sought would be provided in the Skill section.

Position Held

If more than one position was held for one employer, they may all be listed (beginning with the most recent first); they may be grouped together under the heading “various positions” rather than listing all of them; or the most recent position may be listed along with the fact that other positions were also held.

Employer Information

The following basic information is provided for each of the experiences included in your functional resume: Name of employer; City & state where the employer is located

Dates of Employment

May be listed by year (1999-2002); by month and year (June 2000 – January 2002); or by time period (Summer 2000) – select the one that is most appropriate for your experiences. Remember to be consistent – select one style for listing dates and use it throughout this section.
