Data Entry Resume

Why this resume works

  • As a data entry professional, you want to clearly indicate what industries you have worked in (i.e. healthcare, manufacturing) as well as the volume of records you managed. This will help the hiring manager determine quickly if you have applicable experience relevant to the job they're hiring for.
    • The easier you can make the life of the person reviewing your data entry resume, the better your chances of getting an interview.
  • Data entry professionals manage data, therefore your resume should emphasize your accomplishments in terms of data. Be sure to focus on how your work improved data accuracy, process efficiency, and/or revenue growth.
  • Be sure to include any support you provided to other teams, outside of your scope. This will emphasize your collaboration and ability to work on a team.
  • Don't forget to check your resume; be sure your resume score is high to gain the recruiters attention.

Data Entry Specialist Resume

Why this resume works

  • Data entry specialists should focus their resume on how their work directly (and positively) impacted the company. Be sure to cite specific data-driven examples including process improvements that not only improved productivity but increased sales.
  • Data entry specialist resumes need to highlight the scope and responsibilities of your past roles as well as any industry specific experience you have.
    • For example, if you have data entry experience in a healthcare setting then you likely have worked with data that needs to remain private and confidential. This should be mentioned explicitly on your resume.
  • Clearly list your experience with software programs, tools of the trade, and/or databases so your resume will be more appealing (especially if your dream job has similar requirements in the job description).
    • Hiring managers will not have to question your experience and are more apt to contact you for an interview when they see you meet the specific job requirements mentioned in the job description. 

Entry Level Data Entry Resume

Why this resume works

  • Entry level data entry resumes should have a clear objective that indicates foundational skills and experience in the data entry field as well as your goals and how you will support the company.
    • Be aspirational in your resume objective. What do you want to contribute and accomplish in your next data entry role?
  • Be sure to include all applicable and transferable experience including data entry, math, organization, and attention to detail. If you have never held a data entry role, highlight all skills that are similar and "transfer" that experience to your dream data job.
  • Not only do you want to list your responsibilities but be sure to focus on the results provided. Hiring managers are more interested in your "actions" so you need to focus the content of your entry level data entry resume on what you did and the results of your actions.  

Freelance Data Entry Resume

Why this resume works

  • Freelance data entry professionals work independently and usually take on more responsibilities (wear more hats) in the support of their clients. Clearly indicate the number of clients you've worked with simultaneously, as this showcases your organization and leadership skills as well as ability to manage multiple projects. This is appealing to hiring managers because they can see your keen ability to collaborate and meet deadlines.
  • Take advantage of the interests and hobbies section of your resume; include any special projects, programs, or networking groups you actively participate in that would be applicable to the role or the company you are interested in applying. Recruiters and hiring managers like to see freelance data entry professionals who are passionate about similar causes and share similar interests.

Data Entry Clerk Resume

Why this resume works

  • Data entry clerk resumes should focus on any specialty areas or special skills (i.e. revenue, data integrity) that you want the hiring manager to notice about your experience, especially if the job description prefers candidates with your specific skill set. This sets you up for success immediately because the hiring manager can see you're the "right fit" for the role.
  • Bonus: showcase your preferred area of data entry expertise in your resume's overview to really catch the eye of a recruiter or hiring manager.
  • Be sure to include a nice balance of responsibilities with results-oriented data that showcases your accomplishments, not forgetting to include any additional information about industries you have supported and other responsibilities outside of your scope.
