Here’s what a recruiter is looking for in an Event Manager resume

  • Resume sections: Most recruiters only scan resumes. They want information fast, so be sure to break your resume into different sections. We recommend a header, summary, experience, education, and skills section.
  • Summary of achievements: Your summary is your written form of an elevator speech. It's your chance to wow recruiters. The best way to do that? By quantifying your achievements.
  • The scale of events you've managed: Recruiters want to know what you're capable of. How big are the events you've managed? What was the size of your event budget?
  • The type of events you've managed: Which type of event planning do you specialize in? Corporate events, annual retreats, weddings, trade shows, etc.
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment: It's no secret that event management can be stressful. There are a lot of moving parts. Recruiters look for someone who thrives thinking on their feet.
PRO TIPMake a list of the job requirements and make sure you add those to your resume. If a job requires 5+ years in event planning, add that to your summary. A recruiter shouldn't have to search around for that information.
