Research Clerk Resume

A research clerk resume highlights the candidate's expertise in conducting extensive research, pertaining to a specific aspect or an element, within a given industry, namely medicine, law, marketing, IT, mechanics, sales etc. It performs the role of an official mediator between you and your employer, with the help of which you express, or rather showcase your potential for the reader's judgment and taking. Ideally, your job application needs to be comprised of your resume and the cover letter, where the former presents the most essential elements pertaining to your professional qualification and experience, to the employer. The cover letter, on the other hand, is more of a personal medium of communication, which aims to introduce the reader to your interests, and signifies the purpose of your application. It is essential that your application holds adequate personal appeal to the situation, and the recruiter comes looking for information that would convince him to consider you as a beneficial investment for the company.

The Career Objective

Your resume starts with your contact details, where you can also choose to include your date of birth, followed by an effective career objective, which shows your willingness to become an active part of the team, and serve for its progress. Although you don't quote this directly, you may choose to be diplomatic and frame an objective that also acts like an official title to your resume. Study the objective featured in the research clerk resume sample given below, and take tips in effective sentence construction, and attempt to capture the reader's interest.

Executive Summary

Substituting your previous job descriptions with a profile summary is a renowned act of customization that is proved to enhance the projection of your qualities and expertise. Reducing your total experience into 6-8 easy-to-read points facilitates optimal space planning, and encourages the reader to stay engaged and focused in your profile. You need to make it easy for him to gauge your abilities. If you have a lot of information to include, then try clubbing multiple elements together into one sentence, so that you have one point that explains more than one job responsibilities that you've undertaken. Eliminate all unnecessary information, which includes the general functions that you have undertaken so far. The reader is not interested in reading what he already knows, or what he can easily guess. You need to be specific to the requirements put forth by the employer.

Similarly, while stating your skills, leave out all those qualities that lack relevancy or significance to you employment situation. Also, you need not explain your educational qualification in detail unless you're recently graduated, in which case you can choose to include the details of any projects that you had undertaken, or even the details of any awards or rewards that you have earned. All awards pertaining to your employment can be listed in the employment history, or you may feature them in a separate section, denoting your "accomplishments", in which case you need to include them immediately following your educational details.

Given below is a free sample resume for a research clerk. Observe its layout carefully, and understand the arrangement of its contents. Aim for optimal customization, so as to impart a personal appeal to your application. Remember, generic resumes only make it to the trash.
