Functional CV

A functional CV covers an individual’s entire job history. Unlike a chronological resume, this type of CV focuses less on the career history but more one’s expertise, skills and abilities. It is the ideal vitae for individuals without work experience. When writing a functional resume, it is important that one only include the skills that are relevant to the job applied for. Below is a sample functional CV.
