Risk Security Governance Job Cover Letter

For each job, create at least three bullet points that highlight something you did for the employer that had a quantifiable impact. Each bullet point should tell a brief story of an accomplishment: problem/solution/result.

If you’ve opted for the functional style, you’ll be grouping all of your successes in the new “Accomplishments” section inserted between the summary and work experience sections. Since this section is solely for your career accomplishments, you should have 8-10 bullet points if you’re a seasoned professional, and 6-8 if you’re at the beginning of your career path.

If you’ve opted for the functional style, you’ll be grouping all of your successes in the new “Accomplishments” section inserted between the summary and work experience sections. Since this section is solely for your career accomplishments, you should have 8-10 bullet points if you’re a seasoned professional, and 6-8 if you’re at the beginning of your career path.

One advantage to the functional style is that you can order your accomplishments based on how they match the employer’s requirements instead of sticking to a chronological profile. By mirroring their needs, you’ll have the hiring manager nodding in agreement as they read. This allows you to focus on your transferable skills rather than your role at each job, which is great if you’re a career changer.

When you’ve completed the accomplishments section, you can move on to the bare-bones work experience section that is nothing more than a list of previous employers. You don’t even have to include dates, which is a plus if you’ve had large employment gaps.

The final option is a combination style resume, which you can use if you have a few significant successes you want to highlight, but are proud to list your previous jobs and accomplishments as well. You can see all three format variations in the security and risk management resume samples you’re using for reference.
