Office Clerk Resume

An office clerk resume portrays the candidate's qualities and expertise in providing clerical and administrative support, handling and maintaining business documentation, including several daily functions that help regulate interdepartmental business communication. It also indicates the candidate's area of interest, putting forth his career related goals for the reader's taking. An application consists of a resume and a covering letter, which come together to introduce the reader/recruiter to your professional background. The resume is not only an effective mediator between you and the employer, but also a great marketing tool that can enhance your profile, so as to convince the reader to regard you as a potential candidate. With a wide scope for employment, competition seems to have gotten hold of many candidates within this line of profession, which clearly indicates that your resume is the only tool that you have, which can gain the confidence of the employer.

A standard resume starts with an objective, which brings forth your aspirations, while stating your current designation and your area of expertise. Frame it carefully, so that it also acts as a header to your profile. Refer to the sample office clerk resume given below, and study its objective. Then follows the profile summary, where you need to include about six to eight points that quantify your previous work experience. Try assembling multiple pieces of information together into one concrete section that describes your role in the past employments. Be careful here, so as to avoid excess or repetition of information. Similarly, skip all the general responsibilities that you had undertaken, for they don't really add much value. On the contrary, you'll be doing the recruiter a favor by keeping it all short and easy, facilitating an informative and a worthwhile read.

As you move to the next section, you need to include your strengths and knowledge, featuring only those qualities in you that possess utmost significance when compared to the specifications of the job you're seeking. It's very important to keep your resume employer-centered. It would be a good idea to contact one of the recruiters and discuss about the vision of the company, so that you know what is expected from you. Accordingly you may then organize the information, according to the order of importance. Remember to use bullets for highlighting; it'll facilitate clearer visibility and draw the attention of the reader.

Given below is a free sample of an office clerk resume, for your reference. Observe its layout carefully and customize its contents before you include them in your resume. If you have been awarded during your stay at previous organizations or during your education, then you may certainly include the details in a separate section, indicating your "accomplishments", provided that the details hold some relevance to the employment you're seeking. References need not be included if the employer has not specified.
