Part-time Employment History (Retail Manager) Resume

When a retail manager's resume shows part-time employment history, the recruiters are quite likely to consider you as an undesirable candidate, unless the content of the resume is designed to capture the attention of the reader. What is it exactly that makes a reader cling onto one's application? Effective marketing, shall we say? And how about little offering something to the employer? Sounds like a plan. Now, what have we got to offer?

The career objective, which acts as a title to your resume, does the part of drawing attention. It should be carefully framed to project your interests and goals, while considering the needs of the employer. A major portion of your resume is to be employer-centered. The key skills that you mention should hold utmost relevance to the requirements specified for the job profile. Jot down the points on a rough notepad and pick only those that will add some significance to your objective. While stating your employment history, illustrate your involvement in the managerial duties of the retail sector; include about 4 points in your profile summary, but only the non-general ones.

Be as specific to the subject of the profile as possible. You need to convince the reader that you know what's expected from you as a retail manager. This is the significance that relevance holds in a job application. Show your familiarity with sales management, inventory control, purchasing and quality auditing. A retail manager is generally expected to possess adequate knowledge pertaining to human resource principles/practices such as recruitment, performance analysis, staffing etc. Highlight your involvement in any employee training programs that you may have coordinated actively. Mentioning your familiarity with essential business laws would be an advantage.

Educational background need not be elaborated. A section comprising of only the essential details such as the name of the degree and the institute/university, the year of completion of the course, and grades obtained (optional) and certifications if any. All information should be listed in a reverse chronological order featuring the most recent information on the top, followed by the older ones. You may choose to include the details of any awards, rewards, or achievements, however only those that are beyond common or general relevance. You may include such information along with your key skills, immediately following the career objective. This will influence the reader's involvement in high degree. Part-time employment history only seems to be a constraint, now that the reader has been introduced to your professional qualities. How much you know matters more than how long have you known.

Refer to the sample of a retail manager resume bearing part-time employment history. Observe carefully, its layout and understand the nature and the tone of its contents. Copy the layout and the flow of the article, but customize its contents before you include them in your resume so as to avoid crafting a generic resume.
