It was suggested that I create a functional resume.

Could anyone show me a good functional resume that I could work from?

Thanks

I am pretty sure you must have googled it by now, but I have created my functional resume based on the template below:

Template for Functional Resume

Hope this helps.

Thanks very much for the link.

I was hoping to see an example of a junior programmer's functional resume that actually won an interview or even a job. I haven't found one on the net.

Who suggested it? Personally I dislike them and find them hard to use.

You'd better not move over here then. They're the standard form where I live.

I was asked by both a professional career counselor and a good headhunter to prepare a functional resume. It allows me to emphasize the things I have done without regard to how long ago and where I did them.

I am trying to do a career change from senior management to programming. My extensive paid programming experience was decades ago and my Java and C programming was done recently but in school.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
