Events Planner Resume

An events planner resume is written by a person who specializes in organizing and managing events. These events may vary in their scale, scope, and type. Basically, organizing an event involves a lot of work which could be broadly categorized under administrative, logistic, budgeting, and event theme related work. When looked at it more closely, the work of an events planner includes:

  • Deciding and booking a venue for the event
  • Working out suitable dates for the parties involved in the event. This duty assumes more importance when the event is rather of a small nature as a business meet
  • Acquiring all the needed permits from the authorities, so that the event gets going smoothly
  • Arranging for transportation of all the guests arriving for the event
  • Deciding upon the theme of the event (in case of social events) and informing the same to the guests beforehand
  • Arranging for all the needed equipment such as loudspeakers. Also, taking care of the furniture and crockery
  • Taking care of the entire budget of the event

While writing a resume for this post, one needs to take care of the following points:

Avoid any kind of mistakes in the resume - At no cost should there occur a single mistake or spelling or factual error in your resume. The resume is your first point of introduction to the company and if it goes wrong in any way, it will spoil your reputation and thus, may prove not that good for your own interest.

Avoid writing long sentences and long resume - One needs to use bullet points under separate headings and subheadings in the resume. These bullet points should be short and crisp. Every detail in the resume needs to be to the point. You must avoid making a long resume by taking care of your sentences.

Ensure correct names and contact information - While naming the previous companies or employers for whom you have worked, it is essential to make sure that all their names are spelled precisely. Any contact information including phone numbers, emails, zip codes, etc., which you add in your document should also be exactly right. In addition to all this, also mention the designations correctly.

Use separate and clear headings - Using headings for separate sections will prove beneficial for your resume, as it will enable the reader to scan through and reach precisely to the information that he is specifically looking for in the resumes of all the applicants. This will also enable him to take a decision as fast as possible.
