While you are working on your inventory auditor resume, you should use this inventory auditor resume sample to get a good idea about what you should add to your own resume. Here are some great things about this resume and some things that you should think about changing for yours.
Don’t Sell Yourself Short
When it comes to your resume, you can’t sell yourself short. Your professional summary is arguably the most important part of your resume. When a company is hiring, they tend to receive more resumes than they can handle. Your resume could be one of hundreds (or even more) on the hiring manager’s desk. Chances are, the hiring manager won’t read every resume. What will happen is, he or she will read the professional summary and decide if your resume is worth any more of their time. The professional summary on the sample resume is a dime a dozen. Most of the applicants will be an inventory auditor. You need to say something that sets you apart from the rest of the applicants. Start by stating your title and years of experience. For example: Summary Professional and highly motivated inventory auditor with 10 years of experience. Has the ability to work independently and as a team member to approach internal and external auditing procedures. That’s a great start to the professional summary, but don’t end there. Add a few more sentences that detail accomplishments and skills you have acquired doing this job in the past. Make sure that the hiring manager knows that you are the one for the job.
Show Your Skills
After your professional summary, make sure you list your skills. You’ll want the skills in their own category and listed with short bullet points. This example resume has no skills listed at all and goes right into work history. The work history shows the hiring manager that you can do the job, but it doesn’t show how well. Make sure you list skills that are important to the job at hand. You also need to list some skills that are key for just about any work environment. These include the ability to communicate, work as a team with other employees, solve problems, and stay organized.
The formatting of this sample resume is a little confusing. The different sections run together, and it’s hard to identify where one ends and another begins. You need to make sure that your section headings are visibly different from other text. Try underlining the heading or making a border that goes all the way across the page. You also need to make sure that the information under your headings is provided in bullet lists. It makes your resume easier to read. If a hiring manager sees a resume that reads like a book, he or she might just toss it to the side.
