Senior Operations Manager - (Shipping)

  • To make the above resume of an office manager, we've used the Royal Blue template. This template is useful for those people who have extensive work to incorporate in their resume.
  • This template saves a lot of space as it includes personal information section right beside the header and the title and doesn't require a separate space for the personal information section.
  • The ideal font size for writing the body of the resume should be 10-12 points whereas the font size for the header should be 14-16 points.

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 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.

Not sure if your resume is in compliant with industry norms?

Do not worry because Hiration's Resume Reviewing Service allows you to check if your resumes are in compliant with the respective 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.

At Hiration's Online Resume Builder, the location is pre-set in the format of the city name and country pin code. You just have to select them from a drop-down box.

Supply Chain and Procurement

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 makes 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 concerning 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.

Hiration's Resume Reviewing Services allows you your resume's global compatibility.

Operations & Project Management Expert

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 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.

F&B Operations Head

[Back to Table of Content]

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. The 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 hard kills and not 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

Top Level Logistics Leader

  • To make the above resume of top-level logistics leader, we've used the 'New York' template. The recruiter might not have heard of the companies you have 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.
  • You can mention some facts around the revenues, the 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.
  • 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.

Hiration's Online Resume Builder provides a small, single lined space, specially dedicated for writing the one-line descriptions of the companies you have worked for.

Process Delivery Lead Resume Template

  • The Amsterdam template is used to make the resume of process delivery lead. The dates written in the resume must be in the form of (mm/yy-mm/yy) throughout your resume. (mm/yy-mm/yy) the 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 the past tense (excluding points in your current profile). These power verbs communicate your message more strongly and confidently than when using other verbs.
  • Look at the above-given resume to get a better idea of the format of the dates. Look at how they are consistent throughout the resume. Also, observe how every sentence is started using a power verb. In addition to this, see how we have highlighted all the important words and phrases in the resume.
