Resume Template 6

Resume Template 2 is in a scannable, functional format. At first glance, it might seem to be essentially a combination resume template. That's because a functional format emphasizes qualifications, just as a combination format does. But, unlike the combination format, the functional format de-emphasizes work history, by placing it near the end without much said about it.

Thus, why some job applicants use the functional format to de-emphasize a weak employment record or "hide" work-history gaps. The latter is why providing employment dates is optional in the Employers section of this resume template. But, think twice about not providing employment dates. See Functional Resume Format under Resume Formats for more information.

You may download this functional resume template for free and modify it for personal use. It's an RTF file, which is compatible with most word processors (such as Microsoft® Word) and safe to download. But first, please read the Important notice below. It includes the download link.

This functional resume template has the headings listed above the sections. If you'd prefer one that has the headings listed to the left of the sections, see Resume Template 2. Refer to Resume Templates for other formats and styles you may download.

The resume template format (line spacing, margins, fonts, etc.) displayed below is a little different from the download version. That's because Web browsers and word processors display pages in different ways. The download version is better formatted.

If you copy and paste this resume template from your screen instead of downloading it, the format might not stay intact. That's because copying picks up background Web-page formatting that might not be understood by the software application into which you paste it.

QUALIFICATIONS

[For general resume submissions, summarize your most important qualifications. If you're applying for a specific job, tailor your qualifications to match those required in the job description, as closely as possible without making them up. Use action words and industry-standard keywords. Optionally, also list a one- to three-word specific per bullet (•) below, keeping each to one line if possible. If needed, rename this section to better fit what you write, such as Profile, Summary or Background.]

[Optional brief description]

  • [If you're fresh out of school with little career work experience, making your education your most significant career asset, move this section higher up in your resume.]
  • [For example, if your career accomplishments are limited because you've been earning a degree, you might delete the Optional section and move this section to just below the Qualifications section.]
[EXTRA]

[Optional extra section for what you think is important to emphasize; for example, special skills, relevant military duty, awards or membership in career-related professional organizations. (Personal hobbies and interests are no longer included in U.S. resumes, because they have too-often given the wrong impression.) If this section is more important than another, move it up in your resume. Delete this section from the resume template if you don't use it.]

REFERENCES

References available on request. [This resume template section is often omitted in modern resumes, because employers now assume that applicants will provide references if asked. If you want to keep it anyway, simply delete this bracketed text. If you need the space, delete this section.]
