Human Resources Clerk Resume

A human resources clerk resume highlights your proficiency in performing various tasks pertaining to the recruitment, selection, employment, payroll, and the overall management of the work force within a given organization, irrespective of the industry or the nature of business. While it puts forth your most significant qualities and abilities pertaining to human resource management, it also presents your interests and aspirations before the reader. As a great mode of communication, your job application serves to establish strong connection with your employer, and introduce the reader to your profile, so that he's aware of all the significant qualities that you possess, which make your application stand out amongst a couple hundred others. In some or the other way, candidates need to market their profile, advertising their expertise with adequate enhancement, holding utmost relevance to the needs of the employer. One best way to ensure that you get the idea of what to include in your resume is to visit the company website and understand its vision, or you may even talk to one of its recruiters to gain knowledge of their expectations. Now, you may start organizing your contents.

Career Objective

Start by jotting down all that you can think of, on a rough notepad, and cross out all those details that possess low or no relevance to the specifications of the job that you're applying for. The resume starts with your contact details, where you may or may not include your date of birth, following which you are to mention your career objective. Take time to study the objective that is illustrated in the sample of the HR clerk resume given below. Notice that the objective not only shows the candidate's goals, but it's framed in such a manner that it also acts as an official title to your profile, outlining the base details such as your current designation, total experience within the specified industry or as an HR professional, and finally your aim, with respect to the vision of the company.

Summarize your professional background

Next, include an executive summary, a section comprising of 6-8 points that speak about your role as an HR clerk at your previous employments. Refer to the example below and take essential tips as to the organization of information and learn how to club together multiple details into one complete information. Each bulleted point signifies more than one responsibility that you've carried out. Strive to achieve perfection here, as this will greatly facilitate space planning, and subsequently lead to a brief, yet informative resume. Ensure that whatever you include has close relevance to the new job specifications.

Similarly, include a section that will project the most significant skills and knowledge that you possess, carefully framing sentences, so as to keep the reader clinging onto your application. You may also include the details of any awards or rewards that you may have achieved so far, provided that they have some significance, when compared to your new job profile. You may include them along with the details of your employment or academic history, determined by where you were awarded; or you may also include the details in a separate section, as your "accomplishments", following your educational details.

Given below is a free sample of a human resource clerk resume, for your reference. Adopt its layout and customize the contents to impart a personal appeal to it and optimize its effect on the reader.
