A resume that caters to a position in marketing is often challenging to write for one reason only – how does you convince an employer that you would be able to convince customers to buy products or services? It is indeed a daunting task to write a resume for a marketing position, particularly, for a marketing associate.

Marketing Associate Resume Tips

• Your resume is your marketing tool; it should be concise, attractive, and easy to navigate
• Build your resume in Microsoft Word using a Blank Document – Aviod ready-made templates
• Use plain font (Arial, Times New Roman, Calibri or Verdana) on 11 – 12 pt size
• Use upper case in a bold text to highlight section headings

• One-page resume is effective for students and entry-level candidates. Two to three pages for experienced professionals
• Include the only information that is relevant to your career objective
• The professional world and hiring managers value briefness

• If you are just entering in the marketing field place the education section after strengths and before experience
• When listing experience and education section, use reverse chronological order; most recent education or jobs first
• List the required and most relevant skills, qualifications and experience at the top of each section
