About This Sample Resume
This resume sample: administrative support / project management uses the chronological format in a novel way to show a solid work history and to highlight both her administrative and project management skills. What exactly does Paula (not her real name) do to create a strong resume? Let’s see:
- At the top of the resume, she gives a brief but precise job goal in her Job Objective statement. This helps the employer know what Paula is qualified for and helps her to be considered for the types of jobs she wants.
- Paula adds strength to her recent short-term jobs by grouping them together under the title of Contractual Secretarial Positions. This way, she does not appear to be a job hopper.
- Grouping the recent jobs together also allows her to list the things she did at any or all of those jobs so that they don’t need to be said over and over again.
- Although her title at Baskin-Robbins was Secretary, Paula lists the projects she managed, and shows her skill in “wearing two hats” at the same job.
- Paula took computer classes at three local colleges. By stating this, she tells the reader that she likes to learn new skills and keep up with tools and trends in her field.
