Jyotsna Nitika. resume. July 20th , 2017.
In todays economy, high unemployment rates and waning job security have created an onslaught of professionals searching for work. one job opening, there are more than four times as many applicants as there were in the mid- 2000's.
While some circumstances make require a functional format, using a 100% functional format is a turnoff and immediately raises red flags about employment gaps or inexperience. Instead, use a combination format that blends the best features of both formats.
After all, your resume serves as your first impression when being viewed by the hiring manager in the Human Resources department. It could either make you stand out from the other applicants or, fail to create a favorable impression altogether and land in the garbage bin. You need to remember that any hiring manager work against time, and would only spend around 40 to 50 seconds in scanning your resume. Having some eye catching information written may very well land you on their short list.
Templates meant for students should ideally use the functional resume format, as it is more oriented towards giving the employer a gist of everything you have done. It might or might not be related to the job you are applying for, but yes, one should try to keep it relevant to have the desired results. Give a lot of importance to the objective section of the resume. It is an eye catcher and should be used to the full advantage.
