Build your resume in 15 minutes

Use professional field-tested resume templates that follow the exact resume rules employers look for.

There’s no getting around it, as a fellow recruiter your resume is going to be judged by a higher standard than most. You’ll be expected to get every detail right and show an absolute mastery of the job application process from both sides.

Of course that’s easier said than done. Despite those high expectations, your recruiter experience isn’t going to make crafting your recruiter resume that much easier. Fortunately, we’ve put together this guide to help. We’ll walk you through every step of the process with helpful tips and reminders to ensure you get all those critical details just right.

What this guide will show you:

  • Top quality recruiter resume examples to get you started
  • Tips for getting past ATS
  • How to get your formatting just right
  • The best way to include your education and certifications
  • How to add impact to your hard and soft skills
  • Techniques for highlighting your achievements
  • What makes a resume objective or summary effective
  • What to do if you have little or no experience as a recruiter
  • How to use a resume builder for better results

Recruiter resume examples you can learn from

As a recruiter you’ve probably seen hundreds of resumes, so why are we starting this guide with some examples? Simply put, the typical examples you’re used to seeing are good benchmarks for the recruiter resume you need to create. With expectations high, you should start by taking inspiration from top quality examples.

Carefully look over the examples below and start listing what stands out about them. This initial list can allow you to start with a set of ideas instead of a blank page, making it easier to get started.


How to create a recruiter resume that will land the job

One of the biggest issues with resumes in general is that they don’t consider their audience. However, for a recruiter resume this is especially critical to avoid. If the way you craft your resume shows a lack of understanding or appreciation for the person reading it, you’ll be showing that you don’t have a firm grasp of being a recruiter.

So throughout the process of creating each resume (you are creating custom resumes for each position, right?), put yourself in the shoes of the recruiter who’ll be reading it. Consider what’s important to them, what will stand out, and what questions your resume might bring up. By using empathy and getting ahead of potential issues, you’ll give yourself a much better shot at landing the job.

However, as you know, the first hurdle your resume will need to overcome probably won’t be a fellow recruiter but an ATS.

What you need to know about ATS

As a recruiter, you’ve certainly heard about Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) but even if you’ve used them in hiring, how much do you really know about how to get past them as an applicant? Considering how ubiquitous ATS are these days, you need to be thinking about them from the start, so here’s a quick refresher of all the things you need to do to ensure your resume is ATS-ready.

  1. Submit your resume as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf. This should go without saying but failing to do this almost guarantees your resume will be rejected by ATS so it’s worth repeating.
  2. Use a resume builder to ensure your file is easy to read by ATS. This gets more into the technical side of ATS that most recruiters aren’t familiar with. In essence, the structure of the data within a resume file has an enormous impact on how easy it is for ATS to read it. This means that a resume might be rejected simply because the ATS can’t read its contents well enough. To get around this, be sure to use a resume builder which is specifically designed to produce ATS-friendly files.
  3. Keyword-optimize for ATS. You may be familiar with the process of feeding an ATS the criteria for judging incoming resumes. But even if you’re not, you should be considering this process by taking keywords from the job description and incorporating them into your resume as closely as possible to how they were originally written. By doing this, you’re increasing the chances the ATS sees you as a qualified applicant and you make it through to a fellow recruiter.

How should you format your resume?

Once your resume makes it past ATS, you’ve got to make a strong first impression on that recruiter. One of the ways to do this is by being deliberate with your formatting. Even as an HR professional, it’s all too easy to simply start writing and adding resume sections without much thought. However, you need to always be thinking about the flow and order of information your resume conveys.

Start with the basics, you already know you should be using reverse chronological order but try going through the sections of your resume while putting yourself in the recruiter’s shoes. What questions arise? Where can you reorder information to get ahead of those questions? If possible, try sending your resume to a fellow HR professional to get their input.

Then we come to the ultimate formatting question: resume length. You already know that reviewing resumes can be tedious, so consider that fellow recruiter when deciding on the best length. Aim to have your resume as short and information dense as possible. After all, if you submit a 3 page resume, that recruiter would be fair to wonder whether you think other applicants should do the same. That question won’t make a good impression for you.

Which sections should your resume include?

While including all of these would likely make your resume too long, these are the main sections you should consider adding.

  • Resume objective or summary
  • Work experience
  • Certifications
  • Achievements
  • Projects
  • Education
  • Hard skills
  • Soft Skills

How to list your education or certifications on the resume

The education section is one of those places where resume experts and novices alike tend to go on autopilot. They put in their degrees, majors, GPA, etc. even though in many cases the information isn’t really necessary. Let’s review some examples to better illustrate this.

BA in English

University of Massachusetts at Amherst


-Honored with a department writing award

-President of the campus literature society

This is a marginal case but illustrates what not to do well. If your degree is unrelated to your recruiter work and especially if you graduated more than 10 years ago, it’s probably not worth mentioning. Or, if you do mention it, simply list that you have a degree to save valuable space for more impactful information.

The other details in this example could be relevant. Being a good writer and knowing how to manage people are valuable skills. However, work you did this far into the past while a college student is simply not the most professional and effective way to communicate that you have those skills.

BA in Psychology

University of Texas at Austin


-Worked in the admissions department from 2015-2018

This education example is worth including for a few key reasons. First, it’s quite recent. Next, the degree is more closely related to HR work. Lastly, the work in the university admissions department is similar enough to HR work to be worth including.

As for certifications, they are an underrated tool for concretely demonstrating skills, especially if your degrees were obtained a long time ago. If you want to show an HR department that you’re proactive about staying on top of the latest techniques, this is the way to do that. Not to mention the fact that those certification letters next to your name really add a professional touch. But which certifications are best for recruiters?

Courses and certifications to consider including

The world of recruiting has an enormous number of certifications and courses, meaning it’s easier than most to find one that works for you. Here’s a list of some of our top choices.

How to make your skills more effective

This advice may be obvious to you as a recruiter, but a surprising number of people in the field haven’t stopped to consider why some applicant skills seem more impactful and convincing. The difference is specifics and examples. Recruiters can see fluff a mile away, so you need to go beyond simply listing a bunch of skills and find ways to convincingly demonstrate that you have them. This is particularly important for soft skills.

Let’s go through some examples to see what that looks like in practice.


It’s a common skill required for recruiters for good reason. If you’re going to be managing dozens or hundreds of applications at a time, you need to be organized. But simply stating that you are doesn’t mean very much. Let’s try adding an example to emphasize the skill.


-Hired an average of 1.7 candidates per week out of 87 average applicants at HR Ventures

Giving an example of the workload you were able to manage makes this skill much more believable. In cases where you don’t have as much direct experience as a recruiter, these examples could be from non-HR work or even outside of your professional life altogether.

The best hard skills to list on a recruiter resume

  • Talent acquisition
  • LinkedIn recruiting
  • HR tracking systems
  • Specific ATS
  • Social media networking
  • Contact finders like Swordfish,, or Lusha
  • Resume platforms like Indeed, or ZipRecruiter
  • Data mining
  • Candidate interviewing
  • Taleo

The best hard skills to list on a recruiter resume

  • Organized
  • Attention to detail
  • Written and oral communication
  • Empathy and interpersonal skills
  • Working well in groups

How to highlight your achievements

Recruiters tend to see inflated achievements every day. Your goal needs to be demonstrating that your achievements are real and worth noting. As with your skills, the best way to do that is by getting specific. But the devil is in the details, so let’s review some examples to see how the right framing and wording can enhance your achievements.

LinkedIn Recruiter

HR Systems Inc.


-Responsible for hiring qualified candidates for our clients

-Consistently met hiring quotas

-Mastered the process of recruiting and networking via LinkedIn

The achievements listed in this role fall flat because they focus on responsibilities and when they do highlight real achievements they’re too light on specifics. The first point about hiring candidates is too obvious to be worth mentioning. The second simply communicates that you weren’t terrible at your job relative to HR Systems’ standards (and whether those standards were high, who knows?) Lastly, this example makes a strong claim of mastery in some critical LinkedIn skills, but it would be helpful to have some LinkedIn Learning courses or data to back this claim up.

LinkedIn Recruiter

HR Systems Inc.


-Had to adapt and understand hiring systems and criteria for a variety of industries from the C-suite to designers

-Hired an average of 50 qualified candidates a month

-Obtained LinkedIn certifications for Corporate, Technical, and External recruiting

This version of that example refocuses the applicant’s achievements on their adaptability, ability to handle a large workload, and mastery of various aspects of LinkedIn recruiting. In other words, this version turns those experiences into concrete evidence of important skills.

Whether you’re listing your achievements under specific jobs or separately in their own section, it’s critical to think about these as tools for backing up your specific skills and not simply isolated things to boast about.

How to write a resume objective or summary and when to write which

The power of a resume objective or summary is that they each allow you to control the narrative of your resume. Instead of starting your resumes with something basic like your work history, you can begin by making a case for yourself, emphasizing key achievements, addressing the role you want, or getting ahead of a question the reader might have about something in your resume.

But you already know that first impressions are powerful, the trick is harnessing that power in the right way. The following examples will show you how to get the most out of a resume objective or summary.

Resume objective examples for recruiters

A resume objective should be concise and information dense while still being easy to read. You probably know how hard it is on your eyes to look over so many resumes, so do that other recruiter a favor by considering readability. But this is also your first impression, you’re elevator pitch for yourself as a candidate, so take the time to get it right.

Experienced and effective recruiter passionate about hiring talent capable of transforming organizations.

This candidate may have missed their calling to go into politics. A recruiter will be able to see right through this objective. It’s vague to the point of being meaningless. The first impression it creates is of someone who talks a lot but isn’t capable of really getting the job done.

Seasoned recruiter with 7 years as a headhunter currently exploring how non-LinkedIn social media platforms can be used to engage qualified C-suite candidates.

This example makes a choice not to focus as much on accomplishments (those can be easily listed elsewhere) but instead to use their resume objective to lay out how they’re at the cutting edge of their field. It works as a teaser text, something to make a recruiter sit up and want to learn more about the candidate and their approach. Not every objective should attempt this, but it’s an interesting example to show the versatility of this resume section.

Resume summary examples for recruiters

At its most basic level, a resume summary is just a longer objective. However, the worst mistake you can make is to take this as an excuse to ramble on. A summary should strive just as hard to be concise. Also be sure you have a good reason for choosing to include a resume summary. Even recruiters can get carried away and start adding information for its own sake, so always be sure to ask yourself “is this adding value to my resume?” If the answer is no, you need to delete that information. Let’s see what that looks like in practice.

Recent university graduate with a degree in psychology from the University of Arizona looking to begin a career in HR. Can bring internship experience from working as a food services manager and helping in hiring staff for 2 years. Also experienced in social media and LinkedIn networking.

The problem with this resume summary is that it focuses on conveying information that’s better conveyed elsewhere. The recruiter can look at your education, skills, and work history if they want to know more about what’s here. In other words, this example wastes valuable space simply restating basic information. Let’s see it rewritten in a more effective way.

Recent graduate looking to apply research in how episodic marketing can be used to improve recruitment through stronger brand identities to a recruiter position at Imagine Foods. Combines optimism and ambition with a practicality born from years working as a manager in the food service industry.

This example makes several subtle but important changes. First, it turns the disadvantage of not having much experience into an advantage by emphasizing the fresh and interesting ideas about recruitment that this candidate can provide. It also predicts the potential skeptical reaction of the reader and gets ahead of it by citing practical hiring experience. This makes it clear that this candidate doesn’t have their head in the clouds or some ivory tower.

How to write a recruiter resume when you have little or no experience

If you’re a recent graduate or moving from another part of HR, you need to demonstrate you have the core skills necessary for recruiting. Look back at the job description, list the skills and qualities they’re looking for, and ask yourself how you can demonstrate you possess them with achievements, certifications, and trainings. You can even take inspiration from the resume summary example above and frame that as an advantage.

Either way, you need to be upfront but not apologetic about your lack of experience. Just keep in mind that much of recruiting comes down to having the right attitude and mindset, things far harder to teach than using HR recruitment software. If you can show you’ve got those qualities, you’ll be in an excellent position to get hired even over a more experienced candidate.

How to make your resume stand out

As we mentioned in the beginning of this guide, expectations for a recruiter resume are sky high. Even getting all of the details discussed here right won’t guarantee you stand out. But one area where your competition is less likely to take the time is in the resume design.

Handing in a resume with beautiful modern design which makes the content easier and more pleasant to read is a cherry on top which shows you’ve gone the extra mile to make your resume a pleasure to read for a fellow recruiter. The best way to get that design is with a resume builder.

Why your recruiter resume needs a powerful resume builder

There’s no getting around the fact that basic black and white plain text resumes make it look like you didn’t put in the effort. The ability to easily choose from dozens of stunning modern designs is one of the main benefits of using a resume builder. But it also helps ensure your resume is ATS-friendly as well as making the process of creating many custom resumes for different positions simpler.

That’s why choosing’s intuitive and powerful builder is an easy choice. It lets you take care of important design and technical considerations so you can focus on the content. The result is a better recruiter resume and a better shot at that job you’ve been dreaming of.
