Don't make the same mistake everyone else does. What we mean is, don't list your Associate Director job responsibilities instead of your achievements. Recruiters know what you do. They want to know what kind of difference you can bring to their company. Focus on what you've accomplished.

Action Verbs for your Associate Director Resume

PRO TIP

There are dozens of certifications that you can claim as a Associate Director. But, some are more effective than others. That’s why you mustn’t include every certificate other applicants might have. Try instead to earn and list a few of the difficult ones.

A Professional Format for Your Associate Director Resume

There are some aspects worth taking into consideration when choosing the format of your Associate Director resume. These include the position and company you’re applying for, your total years of experience, whether you’ve been through some employment gaps, and so on.

Generally speaking, there are three basic resume formats for you to choose from:

The reverse-chronological resume format is just that: all your jobs listed in a reverse-chronological way, starting from the most recent and moving backward. It’s great for highly experienced professionals with over 10 years in the industry behind their backs. The reason for this: it’s almost entirely focused on experience and achievements.

The functional skills-based resume format, on the other hand, is just the opposite. It’s based on your skills, personality, and expertise. It highlights what you’re capable of even when you don’t have sufficient work experience. This makes it great for students, recent graduates, or people with larger career gaps.

If neither of these sounds like you, go for the combination resume format. It’s a combination of the best characteristics of other formats, which makes it great for showcasing different aspects of your career and education. It also gives you plenty of options to choose from – in terms of colors, structure, and sections.

pro tip icon
PRO TIP

If you feel that you don’t have high chances in a particular company, due to lack of relevant experience, then you can still consider using a creative layout. That might help you get noticed and invited for an interview, as most of the other applicants will have boring resume designs.

Additional Sections for Your Associate Director Resume

After drafting the required sections of your Associate Director resume, it’s now time to move to something a bit more fun. There are a number of sections you can add to your resume depending on the company, the position, and how you’re feeling in general:

Adding the Right Kind of Creativity to Your Associate Director Resume

It is through creativity that we express ourselves. And trust us, it’s important to show at least a bit of your personality if you want to leave a strong first impression.

But what are the ways to add creativity to your Associate Director resume? Well, you can either go for a colorful and engaging template, or you could add some out-of-the-box sections, such as ‘life philosophy’ or ‘what my typical day looks like’.

It’s up to you! Just make sure that the level of creativity matches the position, the company, and the industry you’re applying for.
