Administrative Assistant Resume Example

Updated November 13, 2019

Every administrative assistant resume should contain some mandatory sections such as objective/profile, qualifications, core competencies, skills, experience, and education.

If you have less or no experience in hand, you may replace these sections with honors and awards, extracurricular activities, certifications, professional memberships, languages, and background information.


Based on job requirements and your experiences, you may decide which sections can successfully grab the prospective employer’s interest.

Categorize the contents of your resume by highlighting the most important statements at the beginning of each section.

Within each section, write relevant information in reverse chronological order.
