On this page, we have downloadable resume templates (MS Word) in the functional format. This is not the right format for everyone, but if you have large gaps in your work history, are changing careers, or are brand new to the workforce, it might present you in a more favorable light than the chronological format. If you're not sure this is the right format for you, see Choosing the Right Resume Format.
But if you are satisfied that you want to prepare functional resumes, then start downloading!
All of our templates are in MS Word template format. (But you can use Word files in the free Open Office software too.) To download, just right click and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link As". Make sure you choose a folder on your hard drive to store it in that you'll remember.
