***will add letter when resume is complete***



Oh, Sandra! I knew I had a nonworkable functional resume to convert to more acceptable format, but when I promised to return your resume to you by today I didn t know it was YOURS. Recruiters and HR people hate and despise functional resumes. They re good for what they re good for, but the form was so abused in the past that virtually everyone views any functional resume with suspicion. A functional resume is far more likely to be rejected out of hand than seriously considered.


I m attaching a beginning DRAFT of your new resume. If you will, please go through the items listed in the professional experience section of your old resume and just copy & paste applicable items under the 4 positions we ll describe on your new resume. Don t worry about repetition, wording or anything else that s our job just let me know which points apply to which position. I ll rewrite and then send your revision.


We **could** skip the xxxxxxp in employment time and move AV Youth and Family Services to Earlier Professional Experience where we include no dates. That will be acceptable if you don t want to explain the 2011-2013 xxxxxxp in employment. No resume needs to include dates more than 10-15 years old depending on how work history falls. It will be acceptable to end specific position descriptions with Family Promise of SCV, but that will be cutting things short in that you bexxxxxxn that position only in 2013. Whether we do that or not depends on the reason for the 2-year xxxxxxp 2011-2013.


We ll figure that out later J In the meantime, please do provide job duties and wins 2013 2018.
