Sample Clerical Resume

A clerical resume must effectively showcase the candidate's professional background and his/her clerical abilities while not compromising on his/her computer skills. It is always preferred to take a quick glance at the company website before you start drafting your resume; this will assist you in personalizing your letter. Once you get a fair idea of the organization's vision and functions, you may start organizing your thoughts and ideas so as to make it easier for you to jot them down in your resume.

Remember, your resume needs to stand out amongst hundreds of other job applications; so, be sure to construct your resume effectively in order to engage your reader, who spends not more than 40 seconds on your resume.

Given below are essential tips to write a clerical resume:

  • You may choose to draft a chronological or a combination type of resume, but make sure you stress on your computer skills. Include an appealing objective for your resume that stands out and highlights your career interests.

  • Provide your professional qualification as in your previous work experience and while doing so, make sure you focus on your previous job responsibilities. Then, include information about your academic history in reverse chronological order, including details of your degree, institution and your grades.

  • Finally, highlight your computer skills by mentioning your familiarity in essential computer software, application and tools. You may choose to add information about your accomplishments that are not commonplace or irrelevant to the job title you are applying for.

Refer to the following sample of a clerical resume in order to get a clear picture of how your resume should look like.
