Senior Mortgage Operations Manager


  • We've used the Traditional Maroon template to make the above resume of a senior mortgage operations manager. We've started off the resume by first writing the name and then comes the personal information section.
  • That's how a resume starts, with your name. Your name should be the first thing to be written in the resume. Also, remember not to name your resume as 'Resume'.
  • In the personal information section we've first written the mobile number and then the e-mail. Follow the same sequence of information when writing your personal information section.
  • In addition to this, you can also go for Hiration's Resume Reviewing Service to check if your resumes compliance with industry norms.

Senior Operations Manager - (E-commerce)


  • The Traditional Blue template is used to make the resume of senior operations manager. As you can see in the resume above, in the personal information section, we've written the location using the format {city name, country pin}.
  • So, when making your resume, instead of writing the full address, just write the city name and the country pin.
  • Also, please maintain standard formatting of all your locations: (city, state) if you are applying within the country and (state, country) if you are applying internationally throughout the resume just like we have maintained it in the example above.
  • If you make your resume at Hiration's Online Resume Builder then you'll get the location pre-set in the format of city name and country pin code. You just have to select them from a drop down box.

Supply Chain And Procurement


  • To make the above resume of sales manager & operations specialist, we've used the Signature Timeline template. While making a resume people often forget to put a job title. In the example above, 'Supply Chain And Procurement' is the profile title.
  • Always include a job title optimized according to the profiles which you are targeting. The reason for that is it make it easy to gauge for which profile you're applying for or if you're coming from a completely different profile.
  • Hence, it is important to provide complete clarity with respect to your job. You can further optimize your job title depending on the profiles which you are targeting, just like we have done in the resume above.
  • Also, you can go for Hiration's Resume Reviewing Services to check its global compatibility.

Operations & Project Management Expert


  • We've used the Material Color template to make the resume of operations and project management expert. Use a summary section instead of an objective section if you have over 3 years of experience.
  • Also, we like to misappropriate a JFK quote along the lines of “Ask not what your company can do for you, but what you can do for the company.” Instead of highlighting a list of things that you expect from the organization, showcase your skills instead and convince the recruiter how you plan on using those skills in the company.
  • See the operations and project management expert resume above to get better clarity on how we've written the summary section. We've first mentioned the profile of the person and then the number of years of experience that the person holds. Start of your summary in the same manner. Then continue with cause-effect points.
  • Write what are your skills and how you can use them to benefit the company. You can also opt for making your resume at Hiration's Online Resume Builder.

F&B Operations Head


  • The Orange Twist template is used to make the above resume of an F&B Operations Head. Often people forget to include a key skills section in their resume. Key skills section comes just after the profile summary section. Including the key skills section is important because it helps you pass the ATS test.
  • The Applicant Tracking System works on a keyword matching algorithm wherein they match the keywords in your keywords to the keywords in the job description that you have applied for, thus helping you get through the first screening by the ATS. When making this section, only include the hard kills and not the soft skills.
  • Also, when making this section, put a bullet before each keyword. Make sure your keywords don't exceed the limit of three lines. Look at the above given resume to see how to make a key skills section.
  • In addition to this, you can opt for Hiration's Resume Reviewing Services to check if your resume is recruiter friendly.

Top Level Logistics Leader


  1. To make the above resume of top level logistics leader, we've used the 'New York' template. It’s possible that the recruiter might not have heard of the companies where you worked at. Include a one line description of the same just below the company name. In this description, try to sell that organization to the reader.
  2. You can mention some facts around the revenues, total number of employees, number of customers etc. - basically anything which tells the reader that you were working for a good company. Do that for all the companies where you've worked at. Separate a single line for it and begin your profile from a new paragraph.
  3. Look at the resume above and see how we've written a short, one line description for each company. Do the same in your resume as well. Write things that would instantly quantify the significance of the company in the mind of the recruiter.

(mm/yy-mm/yy) format is the correct format to be used in the resume while writing the dates. Also, start all your sentences in the resume with a power verb.
  • Power verbs have a better impact on the minds of the recruiters. Make sure that all the points in the resume begin with a power verb, and in past tense (excluding points in your current profile).

  • To ensure that your resume reflects most value, you should structure ALL your contribution points in that way. Additionally, make sure all your points don't exceed one line. If they do, either split them into multiple points or create sub points.
