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.

Language is which of the following? Select all that apply.
Weegy: Answer: Language is the human capacity for acquiring and using complex systems of communication, and a language is any specific example of such a system. [ The scientific study of language is called linguistics. Estimates of the number of languages in the world vary between 6,000 and 7,000. However, any precise estimate depends on a partly arbitrary distinction between languages and dialects. Natural languages are spoken or signed, but any language can be encoded into secondary media using auditory, visual, or tactile stimuli, for example, in graphic writing, braille, or whistling. This is because human language is modality-independent. When used as a general concept, "language" may refer to the cognitive ability to learn and use systems of complex communication, or to describe the set of rules that makes up these systems, or the set of utterances that can be produced from those rules. All languages rely on the process of semiosis to relate signs with particular meanings. Oral and sign languages contain a phonological system that governs how symbols are used to form sequences known as words or morphemes, and a syntactic system that governs how words and morphemes are combined to form phrases and utterances. Human language is unique because it has the properties of productivity, recursivity, and displacement, and because it relies entirely on social convention and learning. Its complex structure therefore affords a much wider range of possible expressions and uses than any known system of animal communication. Language is thought to have originated when early hominins started gradually changing their primate communication systems, acquiring the ability to form a theory of other minds and a shared intentionality. This development is sometimes thought to have coincided with an increase in brain volume, and many linguists see the structures of language as having evolved to serve specific communicative and social functions. Language is processed in many ... (More)

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)
