Office Automation Clerk Resume

An office automation clerk resume highlights the candidate's ability to use computers and electronic systems, including hardware and various software applications, to set up functions, and enter and manage process information. As it describes your professional background and expertise, it also brings into spotlight your qualities and vision, pertaining to your profession or career path. It starts with a strong objective that not only outlines your career related interests, but also acts as a perfect heading for your profile, provided that you pay extra attention to its sentence formation. A well framed objective will not only bring together several pieces of information, but also work on drawing the reader's attention unto your application. And for that, your objective must show close connection with the employer/company's vision. It is always a good practice to visit the company's website and understand their vision, or contact the employer and talk to one of its HR personnel, to discuss their needs and get a clear idea of their expectations. Once you know what they are looking for, you can easily sort out the details pertaining to your profile, according to the order of priority and significance.

Organizing the information

Your resume, being an important part of your job application, should bear all the elements that give value to the profile. Pick only the most significant points pertaining to your educational and professional background, highlighting detailed information using bullets, for better visibility and highlighting. Instead of following a standard resume format, try manipulating its layout for better results. One great idea to customize your resume, according to your scenario and the specifications of the job that you are seeking, is to include a profile summary immediately following your objective. This section comprises of 6-8 bulleted points, showcasing several details that explain your involvement in various activities and functions, so far, down the career line. Include only those details that bear utmost relevance to the employer's needs, leaving out those that are very general or insignificant as of now. Check the formation of sentences of each bulleted point within this section in the office automation clerk resume sample given below.

Showcase your skills

Including a section dedicated to showcase your strengths and technical knowledge, immediately following the profile summary, will greatly influence the reader and further engage him in your application. Here, you have the chance to highlight your professional qualities, focusing on your proficiency in administration, management, and the use of a wide range of software and applications. As an office automation clerk, you must show your expertise in processing peripheral data, and maybe bring to light your efficiency in entering commands, setting controls using computers and peripheral devices. As your field of interest falls under a broader sub-category of computer operations, you need to focus on your technical skills.
