        FUNCTIONAL RESUME (Page 20)

        A functional resume is beneficial when:

         much of your work has been volunteer, free-lance, consulting, or temporary
         you have a variety of different, relatively disconnected work experiences
         career growth has been stagnant or there has been an extended absence
         making a career change and you want to emphasize skills not recently utilized
         you are a mature professional with extensive expertise and many work experiences

        A functional resume is NOT beneficial when:

         a career growth pattern is able to be demonstrated
         listing specific employers is important, as in highly traditional fields
         a limited number of functions have been performed
         recent employers are highly prestigious
