Sample Functional Resume 6

Susan Ireland's Comments:
Student Starting Career

Sean Rosen's functional resume is a great example of how a student can present his limited experience to an employer. By creating relevant skill headings, he announced what he could do as a graphic designer (his job objective). And by stating "concurrent with education" in his Work History heading, he explained that he's an industrious fellow who worked his way through school.
