A well-constructed resume has the potential to nab an interview for a job seeker; however, a bunch of careless errors and a poorly structured document could exile the resume to the paper junkyard. To help ensure that your resume offers you a good chance of snagging an interview, you will have a chance to review a Verizon financial manager resume sample. Reading through another job seeker’s resume, and seeing that candidate’s mistakes, should help you to avoid common pitfalls as you construct your resume.
Keep the summary concise and informative
A good summary should help to grab an employer’s attention. This summary sample has some good information, but some of it is vague and there are not enough examples in the section. Numerals should be used for numbers greater than nine. Here is a revision of the original summary: Summary: With 24 years of client experience, I have worked as a project coordinator and a multi-task manager. One of my many responsibilities has included maintaining day-to-day financial operations for six accounts that bill between $5 and $25 million dollars. For my efforts, I have received many awards in excellence for quality and achievement.
Highlight your education and relevant course work
The sample resume does a good job of highlighting work experience, but there is no section regarding education. If the job seeker has earned a college degree, there is no reason to list his or her high school. If you graduated from college, it is assumed that you have earned your high school diploma or GED certificate. Besides listing degrees, this section also is a good place to list courses completed that are related to your line of work.
Don’t forget to proofread your resume
At first glance, the work experience section on the sample resume looks solid. However, on further review, there are a few glaring errors. For example, the style is not consistent. An apostrophe serves a couple of functions, and one of those functions is to signify an absence of letters or numbers. An apostrophe is used to show the admission of numbers for 1998 and 1999, but there is not apostrophe used to show the absence of numbers on 1997. There are several common nouns that are capitalized and should be in lowercase. WRONG: Senior National Account Support Consultant January 1997 to December 2008 Verizon Business ? Boston, MA
RIGHT: Senior National Account Support Consultant January 1997 to December 2008 Verizon Business ? Boston, Mass.
