Here's a resume sample for an internship in Information Technology involving programming and/or website management. I use the term "functional resume format" loosely for this resume because it doesn't strictly follow that format. It might be more accurate to call it a short CV (curriculum vitae) whose structure is closest to the functional resume format. Let me explain...
About This Sample Functional Resume for an IT Internship
I like this resume for an internship a lot because it uses a few techniques that are a little "out of the box." Here's what you'll find.
- Job Objective statement clearly states what type of intern Carlos (not his real name) would like to be. And, it gets that message across with only eight words. Now that's nice and concise!
- Summary section is composed of only two bullet point statements. There's no need for more than two because the other major headings in the resume make it easy to see what Carlos has to offer.
- Education section is near the top of page one. This makes sense, as his pending degree is in computer science and highly relevant to his internship. And, his internship will count toward his degree.
- Technical Skills section is highly valued on a technical resume. By placing it right below Education, Carlos makes it easy for readers to see what skills he offers and what type of internship he is qualified for.
- Projects section is the body of the resume, where relevant hands-on experience is found. In a standard functional resume, this section would have skill headings. Instead, this resume has project names.
- Teamwork is highlighted in each of his project statements. This is key because, as an intern, Carlos will likely be placed on a technical team.
- Work History section is near the end, as in most functional resume formats. It includes some volunteer work along with employment at two pharmacies. Notice how Carlos inserted one statement under his job as a Tutor. That's not usually done in a functional resume but is okay here.
