Public Relation (Fund Raising) Resume

Public relations (fund raising) resume is written by a person with professional interest in public relations operations, whose job is to manage the information flow from the company to the people (and the target audience) and vice versa. This PR activity is necessary to sustain in the competition in the growing market.

All that a public relations manager aims at is developing effective communication, whether it is in the form of special events, fund raisers, promotional events such as contests, etc. The aim here is to reach to the target audience and potential audience in the most economical way possible. Through these activities, the professional persuades the public to keep the name of his company somewhere in their minds when deciding to buy a product or service.

While writing such a kind of specialized resume, one must pay due attention to the following points.

Use effective and clear section headings – It is important that you divide all the information in the resume into separate, clearly named headings and sub-headings. This is a good exercise to make your resume good looking and clear to understand. This also segregates the information and helps the recruiter find exactly what he is looking for.

Communicate your USP clearly – In this case, the applicant's USP needs to be his specialization in fund raising skills for the employer's Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) cell, which the applicant can clearly communicate in the profile summary and work experience sections. You may further get into the intricacies involved in a fund raising activity and go on to state your more specific specialties or USPs in these minute workings of the entire process.

Keep it short – No one would like or desire to read a lengthy resume with all kinds of details thrown in. This is why, while writing any resume, you need to keep the entire focus on the post being applied for; in this case, public relations activities in fund raising.

Following is a public relations (fund raising) resume sample for your reference.
