Chronological Resume Example: Project Manager

About This Sample Chronological Resume for Project Manager:

On this page you'll find a resume sample for a Project Manager. It was first written in a functional resume format (see Functional Resume Example for Project Manager) in the 1990s. Because employers no longer like functional resumes, I have converted it to a chronological resume format (below) to show how it might be used for today's job market.

Resume Review

Here's what you'll find in this resume example:

  • A career change is the objective of this resume. Rae (not his real name) is making a career change from Investigator in the public sector to project manager in the private sector.
  • The Job Objective statement helps Rae make his career change clear to his reader. Without that statement, the employer might assume that Rae wants to be an investigator again.
  • Project Management Accomplishments (instead of just Accomplishments) is the heading for the achievement statements in the body of the resume. This is one more way Rae is pointing to his objective. It also explains why he has so few statements — he's not listing all his past duties, only the achievements that are relevant to his new career.
  • The focus is on project management even in the way he phrases his statements. For example, "Managed research projects" frames his past experience in terms of his job objective.
  • College major is not listed under Education because Rae's major doesn't support his project management objective. He listed his college degree, but not the major. Majors are not required on a resume.
