Why I don’t write functional resumes anymore…

Functional resumes were all the rage in the early 1990s thanks to resume pioneer Yana Parker. These skills-based resumes helped job seekers transition into new careers, or hide flaws in their background such as a scattered work history, or gaps. I used the functional resume quite a few times myself to land a job.

The problem now is that HR folks see these documents as red flags and they will no longer look at them. Finally, it’s been confirmed in the following article, along with other great tips on how to spruce up a resume. Good information to know!
