Creating a Functional Resume – Part 2 [Video – 3:13] (2013)

This is the second video in a three-part series developed to help people recognize the skills they have acquired, and use that information to find the right job.

In this video, the focus is on developing a skills-based resumé, often referred to as a functional resumé. Such a resumé focuses on skills the person has developed through education, job experience, hobbies, volunteer work, and home management.

The narrator explains that the resumé must include contact information, along with the applicant’s job objective; education and qualifications; relevant skills; and employment history. The applicant has the option of listing volunteer work, community involvement, professional development, and hobbies.

The information contained in the video series is also available in a single written guide, available here
