Things To Include In Your Management Resume

No matter where you are in your management career, you need a well-written resume that accurately conveys your value proposition and experience. The job market is stiff and as you search for jobs online, it’s essential that you have a strong resume that highlights your most relevant strengths, skillset, and core competencies that are unique to you as a candidate.

Essentials that need to be included on your management resume are:

  1. A Professional Title – You want to make it as quick and easy for a hiring manager or recruiter to “get” who you are the second they look at your resume – so including a professional title at the top of your resume is of key importance. Example: Senior-Level Management Professional; District Sales Manager; Finance and Accounting Management Professional; Market Development Manager; Catering Sales Manager; or Program Management Professional.
  2. Keywords from the Job Posting – You’ll want to include (without making it look like you copy/pasted) some keywords and phrases from the job posting. This is very important because practically all employers are using a resume-scanning software and scoring your resume for keywords and phrases.
  3. Metrics – Employers like to see numbers so they can fully evaluate the size and scope of your responsibilities. And metrics help employers determine if a person is capable of leading a team, managing a function, or improving productivity.
  4. Accomplishments and Achievements – Employers want to know what else do you do besides go to work, collect a paycheck and go home. How do you contribute to the company bottom line or growth of your department and team? Under each job position title and description, including the most important, impressive, and relevant achievements.
