FutureStarrEvent Management Resume for Freshers
The best way to help a company find a freelancer is to send them a resume and a portfolio. But what if you’re a new freelancer? How can you get noticed.
A highly competent events manager oversees and organizes events, special programs and meetings on behalf of the organization so that it will leave a positive impression on the target audience. Usual work duties listed in the Events Manager Resume are – planning events from start to finish, communicating with related clients, preparing budgets, negotiating with suppliers and vendors, hiring personnel like Waiters or DJ’s, coordinating all operations, leading promotional activities, supervising related staff, checking the event site and approving all aspects, analyzing event success and finally drafting report of the Event for future reference.
If you are self-employed as an event planner, a resume organized by event type under ‘Work Experience’ can help you demonstrate positive metrics for different situations. List the number of weddings you’ve planned, for example, along with the percentage of couples who rated you four or five stars. Next, outline the fundraisers you’ve planned with the year-over-year increase in ROI for each. This approach makes an excellent pairing with the visuals of an event planning portfolio.
Keywords are critical for resumes that will no doubt undergo review by software that includes artificial intelligence (AI). Most companies now use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATSs) which, among other tasks, scan incoming resumes for pre-determined keywords. Only those resumes with the best-matching keywords get passed along for further review by a human.
Reverse chronological organization (listing the most recent work experience first) is the safest bet for most event planner resumes. Hiring managers want to learn about your latest projects because they understand your skills build upon your experiences. This structure answers the question ‘what are you capable of now?’
