Office Manager Resume

The shaded box displaying core competencies is eye-catching and draws attention away from the individual's lack of formal education. The Career Profile and Relevant Experience sections offset the Other Experience section, which is silent about the dates of the person's earlier jobs. Bulleted accomplishments for these experiences, however, are signs of management potential. Note in the Relevant Experience section the underlined statements about achievement, service, and teamwork.
