The best and easiest resume format to review is chronological (starting with most recent job and date and working backwards through your job history). However, a functional resume format is often suggested as an option especially for those who have been out of the job market for a while or who want to change careers. But it can raise red flags that could stop your resume from being reviewed further. Recruiters know that a functional format is often used to hide gaps in employment dates. In addition, details for skills and experience are lumped together into separate functional areas, instead of under each particular job held in the past. In many cases, because of the time and difficulty involved in reading a functional resume, recruiters often pass them over and move on to the next one
Importance of having a well written, professional looking resume: Companies do not interview every applicant for the job because they do not have time to interview each and every candidate who have applied for the job. They eliminate applicants based on resume. Your resume is your very first impression on the prospective employer. Though you got skills and expertise in your niche if you write resume carelessly you are likely out of consideration. Your resume needs to be well written and attention grabbing which stand out above the other applicants. Resume tells the employer about your academic and professional circumstances. Your resume is a key to getting interview and getting your dream job.
To prove you have the skills you listed on resume relate your achievements to your skills. Play with the words. Show prospective employer how you achieved certain things based on your important skills. Show the employer how your skills are beneficial to the company. Usually objective statements comes at the top of resume. Reader is likely to read your objective statement first. Take sufficient time to write your objective statement. Do not write what you want in a job. You can tell the employer what you expect from a job in interview. Instead of it cleverly tell the employer what you can do for him. Avoid writing statements such as where I can advance my skills. Utilize my skills etc. Such statements makes employer think what kind of work suites you instead of what you can do.
