Radio Announcer Resume

A radio announcer resume is written with utmost professionalism and careful approach. The idea is to impress the reader enough, so that he selects you for the next round of interview session. This is the only aim with which any resume is written; this is what an applicant desires the outcome to be.

The work of a radio announcer revolves around communicating with the listeners. He speaks on various entertaining topics such as films, tells jokes, takes interviews of film personalities and other important people, and invites the listeners to call the radio station, answer some simple questions, and win prizes. The announcer basically interacts with the audience, keeping them entertained.

In order to become a good radio announcer, you need to have a clear speech, good communication skills, pleasant and charming personality, and strong ability to make people laugh (in this case, the listeners). No specific educational qualification is required here.

While writing a resume, the following points should be added:

Objective statement - This opens up the resume application with a strong sentence, confirming your career objective to the recruiter. This particular statement has to be in line with the company's own objectives. This is why, it is recommended for you to go through the company's website before writing your resume.

Profile summary - This is the section which is the most comprehensive and very important part of the resume. It contains the important points of the resume application, covering your USP and other areas of specialty.

Skills summary - This is where you write about all your important and relevant skills that you have acquired or learned along the way and which could be beneficial to the company's functioning. Use bullet points in this section.

Work experience - This part contains your work history, including the company names and designations held by you along with the amount of time spent in each company. Add here the responsibilities handled by you in each company. All this should be written in a reverse chronological order.

Educational qualifications - This, too, written in reverse chronological order is a section where you mention your qualifications with the college name, course name, and year of passing.

Achievements - Impressing your reader is made simpler by this section. Here, you can add your important professional achievements point-by-point and show the recruiter that you are worth the job.

References - Although not necessary, but if you want to add or the company asks you to provide references in the resume, you can put the name, designation, and contact of a professional individual whom the recruiter can contact for reference.
