Short Employment History (Operations Clerk) Resume

An operations clerk's resume bearing a short employment history is still able to win the confidence of the reader, provided that it contains a healthy objective that explains the purpose of the application. It should be designed to provide a clear illustration of your career related interests and goals, perfectly in accordance with the needs put forth by the employer. Consisting of one or two sentences, the objective is a brief expression; do not make it long. 30-40 words is just about enough. How good are you at handling the daily duties of a company's executive professionals is what you are to explain, but bearing significant connections to the requirements of the new job profile. Competition only seems to exist since we find traces of this profile in almost every industry we can imagine. Competition only seems to exist, there's a place for every job seeker. Getting employed, on the other hand, is in fact determined by the candidate's determination and degree of involvement in the whole looking-for-a-job process. We as candidates longing for an opportunity just need to learn how to market ourselves effectively. We need to market our profile, not try to sell ourselves out; that usually works with commodities, not people.

Lacking volume in employment history does not essentially make you an undesirable candidate, no clarification required on that. How you present your profile is what matters. Include only the most significant points from your profile, cut down on commonplace information. While you explain your previous job descriptions, state only those that hold close relevance to the job profile that you are applying for. Highlight them using bullets. Include a Key Skills section and state your strengths, brief and bulleted; 5-6 points covering your analytical, clerical, bookkeeping, and soft skills. Academic details need not be explained in detail. References are ideally included if the employer has specified.

Another important aspect to bear in mind is the enclosure of an equally effective cover letter that introduces the reader to your professional background, while showing your willingness to serve for the organization in particular. While it acts as an official introduction to your application, you shouldn't summarize the contents of the resume into the letter. In fact, you are to provide a brief gist of your professional background, but the letter's significance lies in the fact that it is more of a personal appeal to the recruiter, seeking an opportunity within the organization. Also mention how you will support the growth of the company, upon being given an opportunity. Given below is a sample of an operational clerk resume (with short employment history), for your reference. Observe its layout and grasp the nature of its contents and you'll get a clear idea as to how you need to present your information in order to gain the confidence of the reader.
