Creating a Resume for a Part-time Job
Part-time jobs no more carry the tag of ''something is better than nothing'' but are serious positions that need committed employees. Part-times jobs are not any more for passing time but have become essential for building experience, getting exposure, and provide support while you focus your energies off the job to pursue your actual dreams.

With the pressures of the recession showing no signs of abating, part-time positions have become viable options for employers where they can engage and pay for an expert within their budget and still have their business needs fulfilled. So, the average employer is no more on the lookout for just about anybody to fill a part-time position but want committed people. This has also happened because part-time positions seem to be getting popular at all levels o the official hierarchy these days. At the top, part-timers are called in-house consultants, and at the bottom, they are known just as part-time workers. So, creating a specific resume targeted at a part-time job has become a serious affair, and one to be approached with care.
  • Highlight your skill sets: When a company looks for part-timers they are not looking forward to train anybody, but want a stop-gap arrangement where the employee can walk in and start functioning in the job within the hour. While in a normal resume, accomplishments are more important than the duties you had in past jobs, for a part-timer's resume, knowledge of workflows and experience in carrying certain duties matter much more than previous accomplishments.

  • Highlight those accomplishments that emphasize your learning aptitude. In part-time jobs, companies are looking for fast learners, and a track-record that shows you are quick to pick up on new methods and processes will work in your favor and will be more relevant than your other accomplishments.

  • Do not omit the mention of past employers you worked for. Knowledge of your past employers help the recruiter to quickly assess your skill sets and the type of company culture you have been exposed to. This helps the recruiter to assess not only your capabilities, but also whether you would be able to adapt effortlessly into the company culture.

  • Do not neglect researching employer background just because you are applying for a part time job. In order to get the job, it is still important to create a targeted resume and display your alignment with company goals and objectives. What is more important is that there should be no anomaly between your stated career objectives and values and the company goals and values.
Besides these little differences of course, a resume for a part-time job is almost the same as the resume for a full-time or regular job, in structure and rest of the approach. Keeping the points in mind would help you to create a better and more matching resume for a part-time job, and hopefully increase your chances of being recruited.
