Weegy: Answer: Should You Use a Chronological or Functional Resume? By Roberta Chinsky Matuson, Monster Contributing Writer Too many people make the mistake of thinking that a resume's purpose is to get them a job. Actually, resumes open and close doors. [ Their main purpose is to make an employer interested enough to invite you in for an interview. But how do you create that interest when you don't exactly fit the mold? Just as people come in different sizes and shapes, so do resumes. Chronological Resumes The chronological resume seems to be the most popular format used. This type of resume usually contains an objective and/or career summary statement and a chronological listing (from most recent to past) of all your employers along with related accomplishments. Educational information is included along with certifications and special skills. This type of resume may be fine for someone who is experienced, but if you are switching careers or are just entering the workforce, this type of resume will most likely help you wind up in the "no" pile. So how do you showcase your talents if you can't lay them out like everyone else? Functional Resumes Take the time to develop a strong functional resume. Functional resumes highlight your abilities, such as hiring, managing or coaching, rather than your chronological work history. You'll still need to summarize your work history, but this is usually done at the bottom of your resume. Don't panic. By the time the reader has gotten to that point, he is usually sold on bringing you in for an interview. Most books on resume writing contain sections on how to write functional or skills-based resumes. Go to your local bookstore or library and thumb through some books. Then make your selection. One of my favorite books on this topic is an oldie but goodie. It's old enough to be out of print, but you can still find copies online or at libraries. The book is titled Go Hire Yourself an Employer by Richard Irish. It just goes to show that solid advice is just that - solid. Who Should Use a Functional Resume? A functional resume is particularly useful for people who: Have gaps in their work history. Are reentering the workforce. Have frequently changed jobs. ]

Boss andrewpallarca, I'm just asking for the options since the questioner indicated "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY." How can you "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY" when the options are not even given. I just want to be more accurate here. Thank you.
Added 6/28/2013 7:56:55 PM
Yes, you have a point in being accurate, but that's still not the reason to ask for options. It is clearly stated on the rules. Unless the question is really hard to answer without any choices, then maybe we can ask for options. This is not hard to answer so we can provide all possible answers. Asking for options is not going to help the user.
Added 6/28/2013 9:43:35 PM
I think this is a different scenario. First of all the questioner used the word "WHICH" then the questioner used the phrase "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY." Again, how can you "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY" when the options are not even given. I was flagged before for assuming an answer when the option was not even given.



"The user did not provide any options. Please do not assume that user and the one from yahoo will be the same. "

It is still safe to ask the user for clarification and completion of questions."

So I don't understand why this needs to be FLAGGED when clearly, I was asking for some clarification so I can answer it correctly. That's my point for asking the options. Thank you.
Added 6/28/2013 10:49:12 PM
How can you "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY" when there are no OPTIONS to select from? Sometimes you need to ask for the options so that you can answer a specific question.
Added 6/28/2013 11:02:19 PM
Exactly, the user asked to select all that apply, but there are no choices provided. So since the user asked to select all that apply, but no choices, why not take the initiatives to provide all possible answers? I would understand if the user asked for a specific answer which we cannot answer without the choices.

I would unflag the other conversation. That's not supposed to be flagged because that's the same question as your source.

With this conversation, it is clear that you asked for option which we are not supposed to do as stated on the rules.
Please review the rules again.

It is often simpler to work directly from the definition and meaning of exponents. For instance: Simplify x6 ? x5 The rules tell me to add the exponents. [ But I when I started algebra, I had trouble keeping the rules straight, so I just thought about what exponents mean. The " x6 " means "six copies of x multiplied together", and the " x5 " means "five copies of x multiplied together". So if I multiply those two expressions together, I will get eleven copies of x multiplied together. That is: x6 ? x5 = (x6)(x5) = (xxxxxx)(xxxxx) (6 times, and then 5 times) = xxxxxxxxxxx (11 times) = x11 Thus: x6 ? x5 = x11 ] User: Simplify 5(x - 2) + 3x Weegy: (3x-2) squared is 9x^2 - 12x + 4.

According to what you learned, is the following more appropriate as a simile or an analogy? Explain why. Answer in complete sentences. "Her eyes shone like the sun."
Weegy: It's a simile. A simile is a literary tool that is used to give the reader extra information about on object by comparing it to a seemingly dissimilar object. "Her eyes" and "the sun" would appear to be two completely different things. [ [ However, the comparison about how they both "shone" provides a more detailed image of "her eyes". An analogy is a logical tool that draws a comparison between two objects, with the implication that further similarities exist. It is meant to provide information about both compared objects. "Her eyes shone like the sun" is not an analogy because there is no implication that "her eyes" and "the sun" share anything in common beyond the fact that they "shone". In addition, the phrase only intends to provide detail about "her eyes", not "the sun". ] ] (More)

Identify the connotation of the italicized words. Her language was aloof and distant. positive neutral negative User: A young woman from a small town in the Ozarks (where she spoke the regional dialect of the area) goes to college and becomes a manager of a major bank in Boston. Years later, she returns to her home town for a visit, using exclusively Standard American English. Her old friends reject her and find her snobbish. Using what you know about language deviation, why do you think ...
Weegy: A speech community is a group of people who speak a common dialect. Linguists working on language variation often characterize speech communities in terms of extra-linguistic factors, i.e. along ethnic or geographical lines. [ While this can be useful and can shed light on the hows and whys of dialect variation, it is important to note that the linguists who do this KNOW that there is really no such thing as a pure dialect spoken only by a particular ethnic group or by people from just one perfectly definable region. In large part, people are in contact with one another and with many varieties of a language. What is considered standard is associated with prestige, a non-linguistic factor. If what makes a language standard or non-standard is not a linguistic issue, what is the difference? Of course, the reality of the situation is that the situation is VERY complex. There are many factors that come into play. But, it is important to note that dialects are intimately related to the notion of prestige within a society. Basically, the standard dialect is the dialect that is associated with prestige in the society at large. Does this mean that all prestigious people MUST speak the standard? No. But an overwhelming number do. That's why we have no trouble associating the standard with prestige. (Just what constitutes prestige is bundled up in a number of issues that are beyond the scope of this review sheet!) This raises an apparently simple question. If the standard confers prestige on its speakers, why doesn't everyone just learn the standard? Well, what looks simple isn't always so simple. One thing is this. The question assumes that everyone is WELCOME to speak the standard. As the case of NY "r" dropping might suggest, when lots of people in NY starting dropping their r's, the prestige group put their "r's" back in. And, if we know anything about dialects at this point, we should know that people's attitudes towards dialects tells us more about their ... (More)
